10/07/22 8:30 AM EDT

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Oct. 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sarepta Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ:SRPT), the leader in precision genetic medicine for rare diseases, will share new data from across its genetic medicine portfolio at the 27th International Hybrid Annual Congress of the World Muscle Society 2022 Congress (WMS 2022), taking place Oct. 11-15, 2022, in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Data includes a late-breaking real-world evidence presentation on eteplirsen in treated patients with Duchenne amenable to exon 51 skipping, in addition to research from the Company’s gene therapy platform including preclinical data supporting the functionality of the SRP-9001 (delandistrogene moxeparvovec) Sarepta’s investigational gene therapy for the treatment of Duchenne.

“As a leader in genetic medicine, the body of data generated from our science is a reflection of our commitment to our mission to advance science in the interest of patients. Our scientific presence at World Muscle demonstrates our commitment and helps further our collective understanding of these conditions to advance new treatments for Duchenne and other rare neuromuscular diseases,” said Louise Rodino-Klapac, Ph.D., executive vice president and chief scientific officer, Sarepta Therapeutics.
