Description
Curator's Comment:: description was created based on several sources, including http://www.ptcbio.com/en/pipeline/ataluren-translarna/

Ataluren (Translarna) is a small-molecule drug approved in Europe for the treatment of Duchenne muscular dystrophy caused by a nonsense mutation. Ataluren interacts with the ribosome enabling it to read through premature nonsense stop signals on mRNA and allowing the cell to produce a full-length, functional protein. Ataluren is also being tested in phase III for cystic fibrosis caused by a nonsense mutation.

Sample Use Guides

Ataluren (Translarna) is taken three times a day, and the recommended dose is 10 mg/kg (10 mg per kilogram body weight) in the morning, 10 mg/kg at midday and 20 mg/kg in the evening (making a total daily dose of 40 mg/kg). Granules should be mixed with liquid or semi-solid food (such as yogurt).
Route of Administration: Oral
Patient-dervied myotubes cultured with ataluren (10 ug/mL) resulted in the expression of functional dysferlin protein in myotubes derived from a nonsense mutation Miyoshi myopathy patient.
