Sanfilippo Syndrome or Mucopolysaccharidosis Ill (MPS Ill) is a group of lysosomal storage diseases resulting from a deficiency of one of four lysosomal enzymes: Type A - heparan N-sulfatase (SGSH), Type B - a-N-acetylglucosaminidase (NAGLU), Type C - acetyl CoA a-glucosaminide acetyltransferase (HGSNAT) and Type D - N-acetylglucosamine-6-sulfatase (GNS).(More)
Sanfilippo syndrome type B (mucopolysaccharidosis IIIB, MPS IIIB) is a lysosomal storage disease resulting from deficiency of N-acetyl-glucosaminidase (NAGLU) activity. To determine the possible therapeutic utility of recombinant adeno-associated virus (rAAV) in early gene therapy-based interventions, we performed a comprehensive assessment of transduction(More)
Sanfilippo syndrome type B (MPS IIIB) is a lysosomal storage disease caused by a deficiency of N-acetyl-glucosaminidase (NAGLU) activity. Since early therapeutic intervention is likely to yield the most efficacious results, we sought to determine the possible therapeutic utility of rAAV in early gene therapy based interventions. Currently, the application(More)
