03/15/21 8:30 AM EDT

-- Ten abstracts, including four podium presentations, reflect Sarepta’s ongoing commitment to advancing genetic medicine for rare neuromuscular disease and facilitating greater understanding of these devastating conditions --

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., March 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sarepta Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ:SRPT), the leader in precision genetic medicine for rare diseases, will present at the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) Annual Clinical and Scientific Conference, which will take place virtually March 15-18, 2021. Among the research that will be presented:

  • New, two- and one-year data including expression data from muscle biopsies taken two years post-treatment, from Study 9003-101 of SRP-9003, an investigational gene therapy for the treatment of limb-girdle muscular dystrophy (LGMD) type 2E/R4;
  • Data from Part 1 of Study 9001-102, an ongoing clinical trial of SRP-9001, Sarepta’s investigational gene therapy for Duchenne muscular dystrophy and pre-clinical approaches to the challenge of pre-existing antibodies; and,
  • An analysis of time to loss of ambulation in patients taking eteplirsen, a phosphorodiamidate morpholino oligomer (PMO) for the treatment of Duchenne, compared to standard of care.

All posters are available on-demand throughout the Congress beginning on Monday, March 15, 2021 at 6:00 a.m. ET. Podium presentations will take place on Thursday, March 18, 2021. The full MDA 2021 Virtual Congress program is available here:  https://mdaconference.org.
