Study Summary

This trial assesses the safety and feasibility of high-dose inspiratory muscle training (IMT) delivered remotely in Late-onset Pompe Disease (LOPD) and its effects on respiratory and patient-reported outcomes. This trial is testing a new treatment for Late-Onset Pompe Disease. The treatment will be done online. All patients in this trial will receive the new treatment, not a placebo.

Michael Gill holds a Bachelors of Science in Integrated Science and Mathematics from McMaster University. During his degree he devoted considerable time modeling the pharmacodynamics of promising drug candidates. Since then, he has leveraged this knowledge of the investigational new drug ecosystem to help his father navigate clinical trials for multiple myeloma, an experience which prompted him to co-found Power Life Sciences: a company that helps patients access randomized controlled trials.
