32 Members of Congress Show Support for Accelerated Approval of Eteplirsen

Posted by: Christine McSherry on July 18, 2013

Very pleased to say that the “Dear Colleague” letter is being sent to Dr. Janet Woodcock at the FDA – with signatures from 32 Congressmen.  This is  a great accomplishment that was made possible by the Duchenne community and our supporters. Our deepest gratitude to Congressmen Keating, Capuano and Bachus’ offices who truly stepped up to help with this important endeavor.  Many thanks to Ryan Fischer – PPMD, for sending out a call to action to the community.

The momentum of the letter and the briefing sparked the interest of Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).  Senator Warren is currently gaining support on the Senate with another powerful letter to the FDA. The additional support from the Senate side speaks volumes to the need for this drug, and faster treatments for all those with Duchenne.

Our voice, the voice of those affected – is being heard, loud and clear.
