Measure Description: The 6MWD test was performed in a 30-meters-long flat corridor, where the participant was instructed to walk as far as possible, back and forth around two cones, with the permission to slow down, rest, or stop if needed. Ambulation was assessed via the 6MWD test following standardized procedures by measuring the 6MWD in meters. Participants were not permitted to use assistive devices (walker, long leg braces, or short leg braces) during the 6MWD test.

7.Secondary Outcome
Title Change From Baseline in Mean Activity Period/Day/Visit at Week 48, as Assessed by Step Activity Monitoring (SAM)
Hide Description The SAM is a pedometer (worn on the ankle) that continuously records the number of steps per time interval. Participants were instructed to continue to wear the SAM for at least 9 consecutive days. SAM was used to record the number of strides/minute following each visit. A stride is the leg motion that begins when the foot with SAM leaves the floor and ends when the same foot touches the floor again (that is, a stride generally equals 2 steps). Mean activity period/day/visit was computed for each participant. Mean obtained during Screening (Week -6 to -1) and following Week 1 visit were used as baseline data for analysis. For each day, an active period was defined as the first time after 3:00 AM that greater than (>) 2 strides/minute were recorded to the last time prior to midnight that >2 strides/minute were recorded. Days were deleted on which such an active period was less than (<) 50 percent (%) of the mean active period across all days for that participant's visit.

Title Change From Baseline in Percentage of Time During the Active Period Spent at Low Activity (Less Than or Equal to [≤] 15 Steps/Minute), Medium Activity (16-30 Steps/Minute), and High Activity (Greater Than [>]30 Steps/Minute) at Week 48
Hide Description SAM is a pedometer(worn on the ankle) that continuously records the number of steps per time interval. Participants were instructed to continue to wear the SAM for at least 9 consecutive days. SAM was used to record the number of strides/minute following each visit. A stride is the leg motion that begins when the foot with SAM leaves the floor and ends when the same foot touches the floor again. Proportion of time during active periods spent at low activity(≤15 steps/minute), medium activity(16-30 steps/minute), and high activity(>30 steps/minute) were computed for each participant. Mean obtained during Screening and following Week 1 visit were used as baseline data for analysis. For each day, an active period was defined as first time after 3:00 AM that >2 strides/minute were recorded to the last time prior to midnight that >2 strides/minute were recorded. Days were deleted on which such an active period was <50% of the mean active period across all days for that participant's visit.

Title Change From Baseline in Participant- Reported Health-Related Quality of Life (HRQL) as Measured by the Pediatric Quality of Life Inventory (PedsQL) Physical, Emotional, Social, and School Functioning Domain Scores at Week 48
Hide Description HRQL was measured via the PedsQL. The generic core module (including physical, emotional, social and school functioning scales) comprises 23 questions and the fatigue-specific module (including general fatigue, sleep/rest fatigue, and cognitive fatigue scales) comprises an additional 18 questions. The PedsQL was completed by both the participant and/or a parent/caregiver. Examples of items in each of the generic core module scales include: "It is hard for me to run"; "I feel sad or blue"; "I cannot do things that other kids my age can do;" and "It is hard to pay attention in class." Each of the generic core module items was scored on a 5-point likert response scale from 0 (never a problem) to 4 (almost always a problem). Scores were transformed on a scale from 0 to 100 (0=100, 1=75, 2=50, 3=25, 4=0), with higher scores indicating better health-related quality of life. Change from Baseline was calculated by subtracting the Baseline value from the value at Week 48.

PedsQL was completed by both the participant and/or a parent/caregiver. Fatigue-specific module obtains information relating to items such as: "I feel too tired to do things that I like to do"; "I spend a lot of time in bed"; and "I have trouble remembering more than one thing at a time;" Each of the fatigue-specific module items was scored on a 5-point likert response scale from 0 (never a problem) to 4 (almost always a problem). Scores were transformed on a scale from 0 to 100 (0=100, 1=75, 2=50, 3=25, 4=0), with higher scores indicating less fatigue.

Title Change From Baseline in Heart Rate Before, During, and After Each 6MWT at Week 48, as Assessed by Heart Rate Monitoring With the Polar® RS400
Hide Description The heart rate was measured with a Polar RS400 heart rate monitor, which consists of a transmitter strap worn around the chest and a wristwatch receiver. The monitor produces a digital text file with 1 value per minute that represents the mean heart rate for that minute. Mean heart rates values were collected prior to, during, and after the 6MWT. The participant rested for 5 minutes in a sitting position prior to the 6MWT, and the mean heart rate for the last minute of this rest period was collected and documented as the resting heart rate. During the 6MWT, the mean heart rate was collected and documented as the active heart rate. After completing the 6MWT and resting for 3 minutes, the mean heart rate for 1 minute was collected and documented as the recovery heart rate.

21.Secondary Outcome
Title Percent Change From Pre-Treatment Visit (1 Week Prior to Baseline Visit) in Biceps Muscle Dystrophin Expression at Post-Treatment Visit (Week 36), as Determined by Immunofluorescence
Hide Description Immunofluorescence evidence of a change in dystrophin expression on biceps muscle biopsy was defined as an increase in the staining of the sarcolemmal membrane with an antibody to the C-terminal portion of the dystrophin protein (excluding revertant fibers) between the pre-treatment (1 week prior to Baseline visit) and post-treatment (Week 36) biopsies. The biceps muscle was biopsied from one arm for confirmation of the absence or reduced levels of dystrophin prior to treatment initiation and from the other arm to assess for production of dystrophin post-treatment.
Time Frame Pre-Treatment (1 week prior to baseline), post-treatment (Week 36)

22.Other Pre-specified Outcome
Title Percentage of Participants With Treatment-Emergent Adverse Events (AEs)
Hide Description An AE was any untoward medical occurrence in a participant who received study drug without regard to possibility of causal relationship. Serious adverse event (SAE) was an AE resulting in any of the following outcomes or deemed significant for any other reason: death; initial or prolonged inpatient hospitalization; life-threatening experience (immediate risk of dying); persistent or significant disability/incapacity; congenital anomaly. AEs included both SAEs and non-serious AEs. Treatment-emergent adverse event (TEAE) was defined as an adverse event that occurred or worsened in the period extending from first dose of study drug to 6 weeks after the last dose of study drug. A summary of other non-serious AEs and all SAEs, regardless of causality is located in the 'Reported AE section'.
