|Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy||Drug: Drisapersen|
This is a phase IIIb, multi-centre, open-label extension study in male subjects with DMD who have previously been treated with drisapersen.
This study aims to enroll up to approximately 220 subjects. The primary dosing arm is drisapersen 6 mg/kg as subcutaneous (SC) injection(s) once a week. All subjects starting with subcutaneous injections will receive a loading dose of twice weekly 6mg/kg drisapersen for the first three weeks of treatment. This study does not have a minimum duration of participation. Subjects will have varying times of study participation depending on when they enter from one of the eligible studies and will be permitted to continue the study until such a time that they withdraw based on protocol-defined criteria, or BioMarin stops the study. Subjects naïve to treatment are not eligible for participation in this study
For subjects who have previously experienced significant safety or tolerability issues in one of the eligible studies, or who experience these during this study, there is the potential of an alternate intermittent dosing arm. This will be agreed in advance with the Medical Monitor.
For subjects who have previously experienced significant injection site reactions in an earlier drisapersen study, or who experience similar reaction(s) during this study, there is the potential to be dosed intravenously.
