Primary Outcome Measures:
  • IBiSD aims to identify and validate new and disease-specific biomarkers. [ Time Frame: End of study ]
    This study will establish the relevance of urinary and blood biomarkers for the diagnosis, follow-up and assessment of treatment response in patients with DMD (IBiSD1, 2 and 4). IBiSD will also attempt to establish the seroprevalence to the different strains of AAV in patients with DMD (IBiSD3).
