In summary:

  • All studies will now have remote visits. Onsite visits will be reduced from 6 visits to 4 in-person visits with the help of home nursing visits. Note: The nursing and travel services being implemented depending on institutional approval. Everyone is moving as quickly as possible!
  • Participants will have access to fully coordinated travel services at no cost to families.  All travel for onsite visits is paid for and scheduled by the travel service.
  • Starting in January, the adolescent study age minimum will drop to 9 years-old, with a minimum weight of 55 pounds (25 kg).
  • The open label extension study has been extended to 2 years. The total number of clinic visits has been reduced to 6 over the 2-year span, which includes the rollover visit on the same day the participant completes their initial study.
