Mucopolysaccharidosis clinical trials at UCSF
6 in progress, 2 open to eligible people

  • A Prospective Natural History Study of Mucopolysaccharidosis Type IIIB (MPS IIIB)

    open to eligible people ages up to 18 years

    This is a natural history study for children up to 18 years of age who have been diagnosed with Mucopolysaccharidosis Type IIIB (MPS IIIB, also known as Sanfilippo Syndrome Type B). Mucopolysaccharidosis type IIIB is a severe neurodegenerative disorder. The information gathered from this trial may help inform the design and interpretation of subsequent interventional studies. No clinical intervention or study drug is provided by BioMarin in this study.

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis (MPS) VI Clinical Surveillance Program (CSP)

    open to all eligible people

    The objectives of this program are: to further characterize the natural progression of MPS VI disease; to generate and disseminate information on the care and management of MPS VI patients to clinical and medical professionals; to provide a resource to physicians and patients by providing information for optimizing patient care based on aggregate data; to characterize the clinical response to long-term Naglazyme® (galsulfase) treatment; to further characterize the long-term safety of Naglazyme® treatment.

  • A Study of Mucopolysaccharidosis Type IIIB (MPS IIIB)

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    Mucopolysaccharidosis type IIIB (MPS IIIB, also known as Sanfilippo Syndrome Type B) is a severe neurodegenerative disorder. The purpose of this study is to learn more about the health problems in patients with MPS IIIB and how to measure these problems over time. It will particularly look at how the disease develops in young children. This is an observational study, so no experimental drug will be given. The results from this study will help us design future studies to measure whether these health problems get better when we give experimental drug for MPS IIIB.

  • A Treatment Extension Study of Mucopolysaccharidosis Type IIIB

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    The primary objectives of this study are to evaluate the long-term safety and tolerability of BMN 250 administered to subjects with MPS IIIB by an implanted ICV reservoir and catheter and to evaluate the impact of long-term BMN 250 treatment on cognitive function in patients with MPS IIIB as assessed by developmental quotient (DQ).

  • Ascending Dose Study of Genome Editing by the Zinc Finger Nuclease (ZFN) Therapeutic SB-913 in Subjects With MPS II

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The purpose of the study is to evaluate the safety, tolerability and effect on leukocyte and plasma Iduronate 2-Sulfatase (IDS) enzyme activity of ascending doses of SB-913. SB-913 is an intravenously delivered Zinc Finger Nuclease (ZFN) Therapeutic for genome editing. It inserts a correct copy of the IDS gene into the Albumin locus in hepatocytes with the goal of lifelong therapeutic production of the IDS enzyme.

  • Longitudinal Study of Bone Disease in Children With Mucopolysaccharidoses (MPS) I, II, and VI

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    Approximately 85% of individuals with Mucopolysaccharidosis (MPS) type I, II, or VI report weekly pain and 50-60% have significant limitations in their activities of daily living due to MPS related musculoskeletal disease despite treatment with enzyme replacement therapy (ERT). Thus there is a critical need to identify additional therapies to alleviate the burden of musculoskeletal disease in order to improve the health and quality of life of individuals with MPS. However, disease progression needs to be quantified to be able to determine efficacy of new therapies. This study is a multi-institutional, 5-year, longitudinal study of musculoskeletal disease in MPS. The objective is to quantitatively describe the progression of skeletal disease and identify biomarkers that either predict disease severity or could be used as therapeutic targets in individuals with MPS I, II, and VI. A database of standardized measurements of musculoskeletal disease in MPS will allow the field to efficiently move forward with therapeutic clinical trials in patients with MPS.
