Brief Summary:
This is a Phase 2, open-label, single arm trial of pamrevlumab (FG-3019) to estimate pamrevlumab's safety and efficacy in non-ambulatory subjects with DMD.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy Drug: pamrevlumab (FG-3019) Phase 2

Detailed Description:
Each subject will receive pamrevlumab (35 mg/kg) every two weeks by intravenous infusion for up to 156 weeks. After at least 10 to 12 subjects complete one year of treatment interim analysis may increase total subjects enrolled to approximately 32. All subjects will be closely monitored for safety. Efficacy assessments will be performed routinely over the course of the study.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 22 participants
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment

  8. Change in grip strength [ Time Frame: From baseline to 104 weeks ]
  9. Change in pinch strength [ Time Frame: From baseline to 104 weeks ]
  10. Change in Brooke scale for upper extremity [ Time Frame: From baseline to 104 weeks ]
  11. Change in cardiac fibrosis score assessed by MRI [ Time Frame: From baseline to 104 weeks ]
  12. Change in upper arm (bicep) muscle fat and fibrosis assessed by MRI [ Time Frame: From baseline to 104 weeks ]
