BioMarin updates the Multicenter and Multinational Clinical Study 111-901

| 1 Comment

The “Multicenter, Multinational Clinical Assessment Study for Pediatric Patients With Achondroplasia” is a prospective observational study. This study’s code name is 111-901.

The aim of this study is to collect systematic growth measurements of the children in order to collect data to better understand the natural history of achondroplasia.

Children between 2 and 13 years old can be enrolled in the 111-901 study. The measurements take place every 3 months and can go for up to 60 months (or 5 years).

BMN-111 will not be administered in this study. Yet, only children that participate in the study 111-901 can be enrolled in the drug study afterwards, with the code 111-301, in which BMN-111 will be administrated to 50% of participants while the others will receive a placebo.
