Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of participants with Treatment Emergent Adverse Events (TEAEs) [ Time Frame: Up to Week 28 ]

    An AE is any untoward medical occurrence in a subject administered an investigational product (IP), and which does not necessarily have to have a causal relationship with this treatment.

    A TEAE is defined as an AE observed after starting administration of the investigational product (IP) to 14 days after the last dose of IP for the double blind part or moving to the open-label extension part, whichever comes first.

    An IP-related TEAE is defined as any TEAE with a causal relationship of "yes" by the investigator.


  2. Number of participants with vital sign abnormalities and/or AEs [ Time Frame: Up to Week 28 ]
    Number of participants with potentially clinically significant vital sign values.

  3. Number of participants with body weight change abnormalities and/or AEs [ Time Frame: Up to Week 28 ]
    Number of participants with potentially clinically significant body weight.

  4. Number of participants with electrocardiogram (ECG) abnormalities [ Time Frame: Up to Week 28 ]
    Number of participants with potentially clinically significant 12-ECG values.

  5. Number of participants with echocardiography abnormalities and/or AEs [ Time Frame: Up to Week 28 ]
    Number of participants with potentially clinically significant echocardiography values.

  6. Number of participants with laboratory value abnormalities and/or AEs [ Time Frame: Up to Week 28 ]
    Number of participants with potentially clinically significant laboratory values.

  7. Number of participants with suicidal ideation and/or behavior as assessed by Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS) Change from baseline in Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS) [ Time Frame: Baseline and up to Week 28 ]
    The Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS) is a clinician administered assessment tool that evaluates suicidal ideation and behavior. Number of participants that have an affirmative response provided to the 5 items for suicidal ideation (1. Wish to be dead, 2. Non-specific active suicidal thoughts, 3. Active suicidal ideation with any methods (not plan) without intent to act, 4. Active suicidal ideation with some intent to act, without specific plan, 5. Active suicidal ideation with specific plan and intent) and/or to the 6 items for suicidal behavior (1. Actual attempt, 2. Interrupted attempt, 3. Aborted attempt, 4. Preparatory acts or behavior, 5. Suicidal Behavior 6. Completed suicide,) will be reported.

  8. Change from baseline in digit span test [ Time Frame: Baseline and up to Week 24 ]
    The Digit span test is a subtest of Wechsler Intelligence Scale for children (WISC). This test comprises 3 parts on the fifth edition (WISC-V). Digit Span Forward requires the subject to repeat numbers in the same order as presented by the interviewer. Digit Span Backward requires the subject to repeat the numbers in the reverse order of that presented by the interviewer. Digit Span Sequencing requires the subject to sequentially order the numbers presented by the interviewer. Scores of this test are based on each raw score and total raw score.

  9. Percent change from baseline in the assisted 6 minute cycling test (a6MCT) maximal attained revolutions [ Time Frame: Baseline and up to Week 12 ]
    The a6MCT has been developed as a submaximal endurance test for both legs (leg-cycling) and arms (arm-cranking) for children who are expected to lose their walking ability in the near future or are wheel chair dependent. Only arm-cranking will be applied to this study.

  10. Change from baseline in the a6MCT maximal attained revolutions [ Time Frame: Baseline and up to Week 12 ]
    The a6MCT has been developed as a submaximal endurance test for both legs (leg-cycling) and arms (arm-cranking) for children who are expected to lose their walking ability in the near future or are wheel chair dependent. Only arm-cranking will be applied to this study.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Pharmacokinetics (PK) of ASP0367 in plasma: AUC from the time of dosing to the start of next dosing interval (AUCtau) [ Time Frame: Up to Week 1 ]
    AUCtau will be recorded from the PK plasma samples collected.

  2. PK of ASP0367 in plasma: maximum concentration (Cmax) [ Time Frame: Up to Week 1 ]
    Cmax will be recorded from the PK plasma samples collected.

  3. Pharmacodynamics (PD) of ASP0367: Percent change from baseline in peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) delta target genes expression levels in blood [ Time Frame: Baseline and up to Week 4 ]
    Whole blood cell samples will be collected to measure percent change in target gene expressions.

  4. PD of ASP0367: Percent change from baseline in serum myostatin/follistatin ratio [ Time Frame: Baseline and up to Week 12 ]
    Serum samples will be collected to record myostatin/follistatin ratio.

  5. Change from baseline in Performance of Upper Limb Module (PUL) (v2.0) assessment score [ Time Frame: Baseline and up to Week 12 ]
    The PUL Assessment v2.0 includes a total of 23 upper limb test items, with the first entry item A used to define the starting functional level. The remaining 22 items are subdivided into 3 major dimension levels as following; shoulder level (6 items, maximum score of 12), elbow level (9 items, maximum score of 17) and distal level dimension (7 items, maximum score of 13). Positive change in scores indicates an improvement.

  6. Change from baseline on Pediatric Quality of Life (PedsQL) Multidimensional Fatigue Scale [ Time Frame: Baseline and up to Week 12 ]
    PedsQL Multidimensional Fatigue Scale comprises the General Fatigue Scale (6 items), Sleep/Rest Fatigue Scale (6 items) and Cognitive Fatigue Scale (6 items). A 5-point response scale in each item is utilized (0 never a problem; 1 almost never a problem; 2 sometimes a problem; 3 often a problem; 4 almost always a problem). Negative change in scores indicates an improvement. This scale is based on the subject's age and will be assessed by both subject and parent or legal guardian.

  7. Change from baseline in distance walked in 2 minutes assessed in meters [ Time Frame: Baseline and up to Week 12 ]
    The 2-minute walk test (2MWT) is a measurement of endurance that assesses walking distance over 2 minutes. Only ambulatory subjects conduct the 2MWT in this study.
