El Paso, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/25/2015 -- Premier Biomedical, Inc. (OTCQB:BIEI) announced that they have developed and filed a Request for Designation of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy as a rare disease, preparing the way for a formal "Humanitarian Use Device" (HUD) application for Premier's treatment and potential cure for the disease. A United States Patent application for this treatment methodology was filed in the third quarter of 2014.
William A. Hartman, President & CEO of Premier Biomedical, Inc., stated, "There is no known cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, at this time. There are over one million cases worldwide and treatment costs exceed $23 billion annually. Our filing of an application for a Humanitarian Use Device would expedite the availability of this treatment to patients, since the HUD program creates and alternative pathway for getting market approval."
"We are currently awaiting a decision on our Request for Designation of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy with the FDA," Hartman continued. "Our on-going research and development using our patented technology to cure diseases using antibodies against disease antigens, on bodily fluids treated outside the body, offers hope for those afflicted by this dreaded disease, as well as other incurable diseases."
Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) is a recessive X-linked form of muscular dystrophy, and affects 1 in 3,500 births. The condition is mostly seen in males, which results in muscle degeneration and eventual death. Both males and females can carry the mutation; however, females rarely exhibit signs of the disease.
