Audentes Therapeutics is conducting a survey to gather important data related to the Quality of Life & Economic Impacts of XLMTM. The results of this survey will be published and shared with the XLMTM community, and could be shared with health policy makers and insurance companies to support patient access to future treatments. Initially the survey is live for US-based families, with UK and German versions coming soon. They have asked us, along with other patient advocacy organizations, to help share the following information:
Family and Caregiver Economic and Quality of Life Impact of XLMTM Study
Audentes Therapeutics, Inc. recently hired Precision Xtract, an independent consulting company specializing in conducting health outcomes studies, to field a non-interventional (meaning no investigational product is given) study of parents and caregivers of children with XLMTM. This study will collect information about the experiences of XLMTM families and other caregivers in caring for XLMTM patients via an anonymous, internet-based survey. Parents and caregivers of XLMTM patients that are living or that have passed are eligible to participate. The goal of this study is to create a more thorough understanding of the quality of life and economic impact of XLMTM on families and caregivers. Upon completion of the study, the results will be published and shared with the XLMTM community. In addition, summary results could be shared in the future with health policy makers and insurance companies to support patient access to potential treatments.
If you are interested in participating, please follow the link at the bottom of this page. More detailed information about the study, who is eligible to complete the survey and important privacy and consent information are available via this link.
Your privacy, and that of your child, is of the highest consideration for the conduct of this study and the sharing of its results. At no time will your child’s identity, your identity, or any individual patient or caregiver information be shared publicly, or in any way that can be directly linked to you or your child.
Since you all lead very busy lives, the survey is designed so that it may be started and paused so that it may be completed in multiple sessions, if desired. The entire survey is intended to take no more than one hour in total time to complete. Your support of this study is much appreciated and will provide important insights on the quality of life and economic aspects of XLMTM.

***Update 11/26 regarding mobile access to the survey***
We have heard that individuals using mobile devices and tablets (or do not have access to the spreadsheet application), have had challenges in completing the study, specifically the EQ-5D portion.
We have reprogrammed the study so that it can be completed on mobile devices (in addition to laptop and desktop computers).
