... e properly and if they do tendons tear like paper.

News on MYO-029
Mar 21, 2008
... They speak of a newer drug "follistatin" that holds a bit of promise. The article explains it all. ... (1 replies)

... I was wonderig if anyone has read anything about ACVR2B? It is a myostatin inhibitor that seems to work about 3 times as good as MYO-029. In 2005 Wyeth was doing clinical trials with mice, and found this out, while at the same time, they were doing human trials of the MYO-029. I wonder if that discovery is what is delaying the announcement on the MYO-029 results? You can... (9 replies)

... that I was one of the first participants in the trail. I started the trial in Feb 05, and did very well. Once again I too do not know if I was actually on the drug or the Pacebo, but I trulley did notice a diffrence along with people who did not know I was even in the trial. I have FSHMD, along with my son. ... (42 replies)
... I for one am hopeful about the drug trials for MYO-029 - supposedly clinical trials will be finalized end of 2006. - if approved, this drug would re-build lost muscle, however it wouldn't correct the gene that causes muscle wasting.

... VERY EXCITING! Let's not forget though - it's been in Phase 2 for years so this isn't a 'new' phase... it seems good though. Thanks for sharing aphilk!!! (42 replies)
... GOOD NEWS!! It appears that Wyeth is making progress - they have given the drug a name - Stamulumab (MYO-029)- and it has been moved from the "Clinical Trials" section on Wyeth's website, to the "Product Pipeline" section, indicating that it is in Phase 2 of the pipeline. Next will be Pipeline-Phase 3, and finally "Reg. Review". I know that this will not be a cure, but it... (42 replies)
... hey everybody...just found you all as well while looking for myo 029 info. i've been involved in research as a subject before in the fsh albuterol study. that was not so promising and really made folks aggitated. ... (9 replies)
... Hi, I just wanted to stop by and let you know that I went to 8 other drs before finding the one that determined I have MD. The dr I am currently going to is a wonderful Neuromuscular specialist and he really seems to know his stuff. Just thought I'd suggest you see that type of dr before wasting time going to 8 others like I did! Good luck to you! (9 replies)
... Hello mittalr, Welcome to the board. May I ask how old are you and your two brothers? You probably know that MD is usually genetic and inherited. In my case, I got symptoms at age 39. My father got symptoms at age 35. His brother and sister are 70 years old and never got symptoms. My many cousins are all fine as well. Just my Dad and me. I recently learned my dad's... (9 replies)

... Mark, I was happy to see your post. I have read many of your posts, and hadn't noticed that you've been writing lately - I've wondered how you're doing? It's very frustrating not to have a firm diagnosis, I'm sure. I got the genetic blood tests for suspected LGMD two weeks ago, but still haven't heard. They said it takes about 5 weeks. I kind of feel that my life is on... (9 replies)
... Hi everyone, this is another question to the people who where on the trial, how was the drug administered, injection, or tablet? ... (42 replies)
... Hi all, Just wanted to pass along some info. I have heard on the grapevine that the results of the study may be published within the next two weeks!! Keep in mind though that they said they hoped to have the results published in forth quarter of last year so take that intel for what its worth. Questions for ybbroke and any of the trial participants on this board. 1.... (42 replies)

... Just wondering if anyone that was on the trial had anything to say, or becouse of the drug being on trial are they sworn to secrecy? ... (42 replies)
... which I don't think they ever made public. I may be wrong, but I thought that if they weren't satisfied with the results of the clinical trials, the drug would not have even made it to the "Pipeline" category. I think that's significant!. It would be great if Wyeth would issue a press release or something. ... (42 replies)
... Hi, I'm new here... just came across this website/boards this morning and was happy to see that there are others out here to talk to. I'm 27 and found out about 8 months ago that I have MD. We have done so many tests to determine the form, but it is still unknown. I had my muscle biopsy about a year ago and it's so frustrating! I am happy to know that I have an answer to some...
