The study showed dose- and concentration-dependent increases in time to muscle fatigue as measured by changes from baseline in Six Minute Walk Distance, a sub-maximal exercise test of aerobic capacity and endurance, and Maximal Expiratory Pressure, a measure of strength of respiratory muscles, after eight weeks of treatment with reldesemtiv.
The maximal inspiratory pressure (MIP) was measured at residual volume and the maximal expiratory pressure (MEP) was measured at total lung capacity.
