Cases and Conversations: The Importance of Newborn Screening for MPS 1 – How Can We Optimize Patient Outcomes From the Beginning?

Mucopolysaccharidosis type I (MPS I) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by deficiency of α-L-iduronidase (IDUA), which results in accumulation of the glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) dermatan and heparan sulfate in cells throughout the body. Clinical heterogeneity of MPS I is evident by the fact that symptoms can be nonspecific and may be associated with various rheumatological disorders. The irreversible nature of the symptoms and ailments caused by the accumulation and excess storage of GAG highlights the need for timely, accurate diagnosis and early treatment intervention.

Most physicians do not have knowledge or clinical experience managing this rare disease, and their lack of experience can create risks of poor outcomes for patients. In this program, a panel of experts will discuss the diagnosis and management of MPS 1, guided with case studies to highlight practical application. In-depth panel discussions will allow for the audience to submit their own questions via ARS for discussion by the experts.

  • Identify the best methods for early diagnosis of patients with MPS 1
  • Learn when to start therapy for patients with MPS 1
  • Know how to prevent the complications associated with MPS 1
  • Understand the effectiveness of new therapies for patients with MPS 1
