Vyondys 53 is an antisense oligonucleotide of the phosphorodiamidate morpholino oligomer subclass intended to skip exon 53 of the DMD gene and enable the synthesis of a truncated but functional dystrophin protein. Only patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy carrying a mutation in exon 53 will be amenable to this treatment.
