Proteasomal Inhibition for Patients With Mis-sense Mutated Dysferlin (Dysferlin)
|Study Design:||Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||Proteasomal Inhibition for Patients With Mis-sense Mutated Dysferlin|
- Dysferlin protein expression levels change from baseline over 5 days assessed by repeated biopsies and blood draws in skeletal muscle and in blood monocytes following administration of a single dose of Bortezomib. [ Time Frame: repeated needle muscle biopsies over a five day period ]Repeated needle muscle biopsies and blood draws will be performed after administration of a single dose of Bortezomib (Velcade) to assess dysferlin protein expression in skeletal muscle and in blood monocytes over a five day period.
|Study Start Date:||December 2012|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||March 2017|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||March 2017 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Experimental: Bortezomib (Velcade®)
This study tests whether salvage of mis-sense mutated dysferlin through proteasomal inhibition seen in cultured muscle cells can be translated into patients harboring dysferlin mis-sense mutations. The proteasomal inhibitor Bortezomib (Velcade®) is already approved as a medication for the treatment of multiple myeloma in Switzerland and in other countries.
Following an administration of a single dose of Bortezomib repeated needle muscle biopsies and blood draws will be performed to assess dysferlin levels in skeletal muscle and blood monocytes over a five day period.
Other Name: Velcade®
