In a first phase I trial (Ricotti et al., 2016) into the utrophin upregulator exutromid (SMT C1100) the compound was found to be save; however plasma levels were lower than expected and very variable between patients. They hypothesized that this could be due to the diet. In the following phase Ib study (Muntoni et al., 2019) controlling the diet resulted in improved uptake of the compound. They suggest this information is valuable for future trials. They, however, do not mention that the sponsor (Summit) has recently decided to stop the development of ezutromid, since the phase II trial did not show positive results:
