    Cathy Turner is Duchenne Programme and TACT Coordinator at the John Walton Muscular Dystrophy Research...

To date the TACT has held 11 review meetings across Europe and the US, and has reviewed a total of 32 program applications from both academic investigators and industry in the following areas: DMD, BMD, SMA, IBM, CMD, NMD, MNGIE  and XLMTM. Of the 32 compounds reviewed 21 were from industry and 11 were from academic applications; 15 were for novel compounds and 16 were for repurposed drugs; 15 were preclinical stage applications and 17 were clinical stage applications. Therefore, TACT believes that it is fulfilling its remit to be an important resource to many different groups at varying stages of the drug development pathway.

All non-confidential summaries from these applications are now available from the TACT section of the TREAT-NMD website.

Looking forward into 2017, the dates of the upcoming TACT review meetings have now been confirmed:

15th meeting: Edinburgh, Scotland 29-30th April 2017
16th meeting: Montreal, Canada 24-25th October 2017

Anyone wishing to submit a proposal for these meetings should contact Cathy Turner from the TACT secretariat, as soon as possible.

TACT and the Secretariat would like to gratefully acknowledge the continued support received from patient organisations which make these meetings possible.
