Mucopolysaccharidoses (MPS) are complex storage disorders that result in the accumulation of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) in urine, blood, brain and other tissues. Symptomatic patients are typically screened for MPS by analysis of GAG in urine. Current screening methods used in clinical laboratories are based on colorimetric assays that lack the sensitivity and specificity to reliably detect mild GAG elevations that occur in some patients with MPS. We have developed a straightforward, reliable… CONTINUE READING
