What is Exondys 51?
Exondys 51 is manufactured by Sarepta Therapeutics, Inc. Exondys 51 is an antisense oligonucleotide with FDA approval (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) for the treatment of Duchenne muscular dystrophy, (DMD) in patients who have a confirmed mutation of the DMD gene that is compliant to exon skipping.

This approval is under accelerated approval based on an increase in dystrophin production in skeletal muscle seen in some patients treated with Exondys 51. Continued approval for this use may be based on verification of a clinical benefit in confirmatory trials.
