The purpose of the study is to evaluate the ability of rhASB versus placebo to enhance endurance in patients with Mucopolysaccharidosis VI (MPS VI), as evidenced by an increase in the number of meters walked in the 12 minute walk test at Week 24 compared with baseline.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the long-term efficacy and safety of rhASB treatment in patients with Mucopolysaccharidosis VI.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the administration of iduronate-2-sulfatase enzyme in a weekly or every other week therapy frequency is safe and efficacious in patients w...
OBJECTIVES: I. Evaluate the safety and feasibility of treating mucopolysaccharidosis II (mild Hunter syndrome) by lymphocyte gene therapy. II. Determine the levels of iduronate-2-sulfat...
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is characterized by elevation in the activity of sulfatase-2, an extracellular enzyme that catalyzes removal of 6-O-sulfate groups from heparan sulfate. Therefore, we co...
Mucopolysaccharidosis (MPS) are rare inherited metabolic diseases, causing lysosomal storage of mucopolysaccharides; clinical presentation involves skeletal system and particularly the spine. Anomalie...
Overall Goal: This study was designed to evaluate the impact of pentosan polysulfate (PPS) treatment on mice with mucopolysaccharidosis (MPS) type IIIA (Sanfilippo A syndrome; OMIM 252900).
Steroid sulfatase (STS) plays an important role in the regulation of steroid hormones. Metabolism of steroid hormones in zebrafish has been investigated, but the action of steroid sulfatase remains un...
Although placebo analgesia is a well-recognized phenomenon with important clinical implications, the possibility that placebo effects occur during sleep has received little attention. This experimenta...
Mucopolysaccharidosis with excessive chondroitin sulfate B in urine, characterized by dwarfism and deafness. It is caused by a deficiency of N-acetylgalactosamine-4-sulfatase (arylsulfatase B).
An arylsulfatase that catalyzes the hydrolysis of the 4-sulfate groups of the N-acetyl-D-galactosamine 4-sulfate units of chondroitin sulfate and dermatan sulfate. A deficiency of this enzyme is responsible for the inherited lysosomal disease, Maroteaux-Lamy syndrome (MUCOPOLYSACCHARIDOSIS VI). EC 220.127.116.11.
Systemic lysosomal storage disease marked by progressive physical deterioration and caused by a deficiency of L-sulfoiduronate sulfatase. This disease differs from MUCOPOLYSACCHARIDOSIS I by slower progression, lack of corneal clouding, and X-linked rather than autosomal recessive inheritance. The mild form produces near-normal intelligence and life span. The severe form usually causes death by age 15.
An enzyme that catalyzes the transfer of acetylgalactosamine from UDP N-acetylgalactosamine to various 2-fucosylgalactosides as acceptors. EC 18.104.22.168.
Enzymes that catalyze the transfer of N-acetylgalactosamine from a nucleoside diphosphate N-acetylgalactosamine to an acceptor molecule which is frequently another carbohydrate. EC 2.4.1.-.
