The authors report a pilot open-label two-center therapeutic trial of oxatomide in 14 steroid-naive DMD boys aged 5-10 years. Comparison of linear evolutions between 3 months medication-free lead-in periods and 6 months treatment periods showed no significant differences in quantitative (QMT) and manual (MMT) measurements of muscle strength and timed functional tests. A modest mitigation of strength deterioration over time cannot be excluded.
