Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determine whether MYODM (formulated composition containing Theobroma cacao supplemented with caffeine (caffeine/theobromine ratio1/1.85, w/w) is effective in the treatment of excessive daytime sleepiness due to myotonic dystrophy type 1 (DM1) and improves the quality of life of these patients.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Myotonic Dystrophy 1 Dietary Supplement: MYODM Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

Detailed Description:

Myotonic Dystrophy type I (DM1) is the most common form of adult muscular dystrophy, affecting 1 in 8000 individuals. It is an autosomal dominant disorder with multisystemic involvement of multiple organs and tissues, mainly brain, heart, endocrine system, eyes and both smooth and skeletal muscles.

Hypersomnolence is one of the most frequently reported symptoms in patients with DM1 and often lead to handicap such as cessation of employment and withdrawal from social activities. The present project is a 6 month randomized study to assess the effect of MYODM on fatigue, hypersomnia and quality of life in DM1 patients.The patients will be randomized to one of the two study arms. The active arm will receive the MYODM treatment and the control arm will not but both will follow the same evaluation program.

Patients will come to the center every 3 months for evaluations.

Actual Study Start Date : November 9, 2020
Estimated Primary Completion Date : August 2021
Estimated Study Completion Date : September 2021


Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: MYODM
MYODM, three times a day, orally
Dietary Supplement: MYODM
Formulated composition containing Theobroma cacao supplemented with caffeine

No Intervention: No intervention

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in Individualized Neuromuscular Quality of Life (INQoL) Mean Scores [ Time Frame: Screening, Month 3, Month 6 ]
    Scores from the self-administered INQoL questionnaire will be compared at the start of the study (Month 0) and at the end (Month 6) among the MYODM treated group and the control group. Scores range from 0-100, with 100 being a better outcome.

  2. Change in Individualized Short Form-36 (SF-36) Mean Scores [ Time Frame: Screening, Month 3, Month 6 ]
    Scores from the self-administered SF-36 questionnaire will be measured at the start of the study (Month 0), and at the end (Month 6) among patients in the MYODM-treated group and control group. Mean scores range from 0 (minimum) - 100 (maximum) with higher mean scores reflecting better outcomes.

  3. Change in Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS) Scores [ Time Frame: Screening, Month 3, Month 6 ]
    ESS score range is 0-24; lower ESS scores indicate less daytime sleepiness; higher ESS scores indicate more severe sleepiness


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in Physical activity and daytime sleepiness measured with GeneActiv actometer [ Time Frame: Screening, Baseline, Month 6 ]
