Know your mutation.
If you haven’t already done so, get a genetic test to identify your child’s genetic mutation; your doctor or a genetic counselor can interpret the results to determine if your child is one of the estimated 8% of people with DMD (Duchenne muscular dystrophy) who are amenable to treatment with VYONDYS 53. Genetic test results may also help your doctor make other disease management decisions.
Understand test results.
