Mucopolysaccharidosis VI information including symptoms, diagnosis, misdiagnosis, treatment, causes, patient stories, videos, forums, prevention, and prognosis.
Mucopolysaccharidosis (MPS) is a group of rare metabolic diseases characterized by intralysosomal accumulation of glycosaminoglycans. MPS type VI or Maroteaux-Lamy syndrome is an autosomal-recessive syndrome caused by mutations in the lysosomal enzyme arylsulfatase B. A defect in the gene leads to accumulation of nondegraded mucopolysaccharides, resulting in severe cellular dysfunction with multisystem expression. The oral manifestations of MPS VI are not well described in the literature. This paper presents a series of seven patients with MPS VI, with the description of the general clinical manifestations and focus on the still rarely studied oral manifestations of the syndrome. Among them were high palate, open bite, impacted and/or included teeth, thickening of the pericoronal follicle, and changes in the temporomandibular joint. (Quintessence Int 2012;43:e32 e38) Key words: arylsulfatase B, metabolic diseases, mucopolysaccharidosis, oral manfestations ...

MPS, or mucopolysaccharidosis (mew-co-paw-lee-sack-a-rid-o-sis), disorders are a group of rare inherited diseases that affect about 1 in every 25,000 people in the United States. There are 7 MPS disorders: MPS I (Hurler, Hurler-Scheie, and Scheie syndromes), II (Hunter syndrome), III (Sanfilippo syndrome), IV (Morquio syndrome), VI (Maroteaux-Lamy syndrome), VII (Sly syndrome), and IX (no other name). In people who have MPS, the body cannot break down certain materials in the bodys cells. These materials then build up in the cells, causing problems such as stiff joints, misshapen bones, curled hands and reduced hand function, frequent ear infections, vision and hearing problems, thickened facial features, and heart problems. Getting access to diagnosis and treatment can help make MPS easier to manage; but unfortunately, people with MPS may go undiagnosed for many years.. This study is being done to learn how many children and young adults who come to pediatric rheumatology clinics may have ...
Enzyme replacement therapy: Enzyme replacement therapy is available for mucopolysaccharidoses type I (Hurler-Scheie and Scheie phenotypes), type II (Hunter syndrome), and type VI (Maroteaux-Lamy syndrome). Although enzyme replacement therapy may have systemic benefits for the patient, little evidence suggests that it favorably alters the natural history of the spinal disease. ...
Galsulfase, a Food and Drug Administration-approved enzyme replacement therapy for mucopolysaccharidosis VI, is administered once weekly in a hospital setting as a 4-hour intravenous infusion. To improve convenience and alleviate family responsibilities associated with clinic visits, some physicians are transitioning appropriate patients to home infusion therapy. An online survey was conducted with 3 physicians treating 4 patients with mucopolysaccharidosis VI to better understand the factors motivating the transition to home infusion therapy, identify characteristics of appropriate candidates, and evaluate the potential impact on the lives of patients and their families. Survey results showed that home infusion may offer patients and their families increased flexibility of schedule and enhanced family life ...
Life-threatening anaphylactic reactions and severe allergic reactions have been observed in some patients during NAGLAZYME (galsulfase) infusions and up to 24 hours after infusion. If these reactions occur, immediate discontinuation of NAGLAZYME is recommended and appropriate medical treatment should be initiated, which may include resuscitation, epinephrine, administering additional antihistamines, antipyretics or corticosteroids. In patients who have experienced anaphylaxis or other severe allergic reactions during infusion with NAGLAZYME, caution should be exercised upon rechallenge; appropriately trained personnel and equipment for emergency resuscitation (including epinephrine) should be available during infusions. As with other enzyme replacement therapies, immune-mediated reactions, including membranous glomerulonephritis have been observed. In clinical trials, nearly all patients developed antibodies as a result of treatment with NAGLAZYME; however, the analysis revealed no consistent ...

Progressive myelopathies can be secondary to inborn errors of metabolism (IEM) such as mucopolysaccharidosis, mucolipidosis, and adrenomyeloneuropathy. The available scale, Japanese Orthopaedic Association (JOA) score, was validated only for degenerative vertebral diseases. Our objective is to propose and validate a new scale addressing progressive myelopathies and to present validating data for JOA in these diseases. A new scale, Severity Score System for Progressive Myelopathy (SSPROM), was constructed covering motor disability, sphincter dysfunction, spasticity, and sensory losses. Inter- and intra-rater reliabilities were measured. External validation was tested by applying JOA, the Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS), the Barthel index, and the Osame Motor Disability Score. Thirty-eight patients, 17 with adrenomyeloneuropathy, 3 with mucopolysaccharidosis I, 3 with mucopolysaccharidosis IV, 2 with mucopolysaccharidosis VI, 2 with mucolipidosis, and 11 with human T-cell lymphotropic ...
Mucopolysaccharides are long molecular chains of sugar. They are used by the body in the building of connective tissues. They must also be broken down and reused by the body. Children with MPS are unable to produce one of the enzymes essential to this task. Mucopolysaccharide diseases (or Mucopolysaccharidosis or MPS) are genetic diseases caused by recessive genes. There are seven Mucopolysaccharide (MPS) disorders. They are referred to as MPS I-VII but many of them go by the name of the doctor who first described the condition as well. Hunter syndrome, Hurler syndrome, Scheie syndrome, Sanfilippo syndrome, Maroteaux-Lamy syndrome, and Morquio disease are all Mucopolysaccharide diseases.
Mucopolysaccharidosis (MPSs) are inherited metabolic diseases caused by a deficiency of lysosomal enzymes responsible for degradation of glycosaminoglycans, resulting in accumulation of these macromolecules within the lysosomes of cells,resulting in dysfunction of various organs and tissues in a progressive manner. A variation of this disease is a mucopolysaccharidosis (MPS) type VI or Maroteax-Lamy syndrome, in which the patient appears normal at birth but, in addition to the accumulation of MPSs arise progressive deformities such as short stature, coarse face, contractures joint, several skeletal defects, as well as cardiovascular,hepatoesplenomigalia, ocular, oral and speech therapy. This type of MPS does not have mental retardation and psychomotor retardation. This report presents some consequences arising from the speech therapy and dental syndrome, a carrier male with eight years of age. Physical examinations were performed, radiographic, speech therapy, dental, medical history and also ...

When our daughter Lucy had a metabolic crisis at 7 days old, we were shocked and devastated to find out that she was born with a rare genetic disorder (MSUD). Her newborn screening results did not make it back in time to prevent the crisis, and no one at our local hospital was familiar with the disease. They did not know how to treat her. Calls were made to Greenwood Genetic Center to confirm her diagnosis ...

... encoded by this gene belongs to the sulfatase family. The arylsulfatase B homodimer hydrolyzes sulfate groups of N-Acetyl-D-galactosamine, chondriotin sulfate, and dermatan sulfate. The protein is targetted to the lysozyme. Mucopolysaccharidosis type VI is an autosomal recessive lysosomal storage disorder resulting from a deficiency of arylsulfatase B. Two alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008 ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Decline in arylsulfatase B leads to increased invasiveness of melanoma cells. AU - Bhattacharyya, Sumit. AU - Feferman, Leo. AU - Terai, Kaoru. AU - Dudek, Arkadiusz Z.. AU - Tobacman, Joanne K.. PY - 2017/1/1. Y1 - 2017/1/1. N2 - Arylsulfatase B (ARSB; N-acetylgalactosamine 4-sulfatase) is reduced in several malignancies, but levels in melanoma have not been investigated previously. Experiments were performed in melanoma cell lines to determine ARSB activity and impact on melanoma invasiveness. ARSB activity was reduced ~50% in melanoma cells compared to normal melanocytes. Silencing ARSB significantly increased the mRNA expression of chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan(CSPG)4 and pro-matrix metalloproteinase(MMP)-2, known mediators of melanoma progression. Also, invasiveness and MMP activity increased when ARSB was reduced, and recombinant ARSB inhibited invasiveness and MMP activity. Since the only known function of ARSB is to remove 4-sulfate groups from the ...

Mucopolysaccharidosis type I (MPS I) is a genetic disease caused by the deficiency of α-L-iduronidase (IDUA) activity. MPS I is classified into three clinical phenotypes called Hurler, Scheie, and Hurler-Scheie syndromes according to their clinical severity. Treatments for MPS I are available. Better outcomes are associated with early treatment, which suggests a need for newborn screening for MPS I. The goal of this study was to determine whether measuring IDUA activity in dried blood on filter paper was effective in newborn screening for MPS I. We conducted a newborn screening pilot program for MPS I from October 01, 2008 to April 30, 2013. Screening involved measuring IDUA activity in dried blood spots from 35,285 newborns using a fluorometric assay. Of the 35,285 newborns screened, 19 did not pass the tests and had been noticed for a recall examination. After completing further recheck process, 3 were recalled again for leukocyte IDUA enzyme activity testing. Two of the three had deficient leukocyte
