In October 2022, Roche/Genentech shared with us plans to initiate a new trial called MANOEUVRE. This global Phase 2 clinical study will evaluate GYM329 (RO7204239), an investigational anti-myostatin antibody targeting muscle growth, in individuals living with FSHD (NCT05548556). We have invited them to share with us, in this upcoming webinar, more about Roche/Genentech, the investigational drug being tested, the design of the trial, and who may be eligible to participate.
