Niemann-Pick disease type C (NPC disease) is an incurable cellular lipid-trafficking disorder characterized by neurodegeneration and intralysosomal accumulation of cholesterol and glycosphingolipids. Treatment with miglustat, a small imino sugar that reversibly inhibits glucosylceramide synthase, which is necessary for glycosphingolipid synthesis, has been(More)
Niemann-Pick disease type C (NPC disease) is an incurable, neurodegenerative, autosomal recessive disease caused by mutations in either the NPC1 or the NPC2 gene. These mutations affect the intracellular trafficking of lipids and cholesterol, resulting in the intralysosomal accumulation of unesterified cholesterol and glycosphingolipids. These abnormalities(More)
Mucopolysaccharidosis VII (MPS VII) is a lysosomal storage disease arising from mutations in β-d-glucuronidase (GUSB), which results in glycosaminoglycan (GAG) accumulation and a variety of clinical manifestations including neurological disease. Herein, MPS VII dogs were injected intravenously (i.v.) and/or intrathecally (i.t.) via the cisterna magna with(More)
