Dr. Tanja Taivassalo joined PPMD for a community webinar last week to present an update on the University of Florida’s Department of Defense funded clinical trial evaluating the potential of low-dose twice weekly steroids and exercise training as therapeutic strategies for individuals with Duchenne.

Dr. Taivassalo shares preliminary findings and updates on the study, that aims to determine whether the use of the recommended daily dose of steroid taken only twice a week may be as effective with less side effects compared to daily dosing; and whether home-based, remotely supervised moderate intensity leg cycling and isometric strengthening may benefit muscle in boys aged 5 to 8 years old.
