Company overview

Sarepta Therapeutics (SRPT) is a commercial-stage biopharmaceutical company that develops unique RNA-targeted therapeutics, gene therapy, and other approaches for rare neuromuscular diseases. Sarepta’s first product on the market, Exondys 51, was approved in the United States in September 2016 for treating Duchenne muscular dystrophy (or DMD) for patients with a confirmed mutation of the DMD gene.

To drive product sales, Sarepta Therapeutics has begun a market access program for Exondys 51 in countries where it hasn’t been approved in Europe, North America, South America, and Asia. This program provides physicians with a mechanism to prescribe the drug for patients who meet specified criteria.
