Effect of Motor Development, Motor Function and Electrophysiologic Findings of IOPD Under ERT

2016-05-04 21:53:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

To investigate the motor development, motor function and electrodiagnostics presentation in IOPD under ERT.

Description

Background

Pompe disease is an autosomal recessive disease, enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) and new born screen (NBS) had been initiated in Taiwan since 2008. However, residual muscle weakness were noted. Decrease in amplitude of nerve compound muscle action potential (CMAP) and increase spontaneous activity were reported before the imitation of ERT. However, the motor development, motor function and electrodiagnostic presentation which were important in further direction of treatment and rehabilitation program arrangement in infantile Pompe disease (IOPD) under ERT is lacking.

Aim

To investigate the motor development, motor function and electrodiagnostic presentation in IOPD under ERT.

Method

This is an observational, prospective, longitudinal, follow-up study. Motor development was assessed by Alberta Infant Motor Scale (AIMS) and Peabody Developmental Motor Scales, Second Edition (PDMS II); motor function was assessed by Pediatric Evaluation of Disability Inventory (PEDI) and Gross Motor Function Measure (GMFM). Electrodiagnosis studies include nerve conduction study (NCS) and electromyography (EMG).

Expect Effects

Obtain the characteristics of motor development, motor function and electrodiagnosis presentation of IOPD under ERT, and the relation between motor development, motor function and electrodiagnosis presentation.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An autosomal recessive metabolic disorder due to deficient expression of amylo-1,6-glucosidase (one part of the glycogen debranching enzyme system). The clinical course of the disease is similar to that of glycogen storage disease type I, but milder. Massive hepatomegaly, which is present in young children, diminishes and occasionally disappears with age. Levels of glycogen with short outer branches are elevated in muscle, liver, and erythrocytes. Six subgroups have been identified, with subgroups Type IIIa and Type IIIb being the most prevalent.

An autosomal recessive glycogen storage disease in which there is deficient expression of 6-phosphofructose 1-kinase in muscle (PHOSPHOFRUCTOKINASE-1, MUSCLE TYPE) resulting in abnormal deposition of glycogen in muscle tissue. These patients have severe congenital muscular dystrophy and are exercise intolerant.

A hepatic GLYCOGEN STORAGE DISEASE in which there is an apparent deficiency of hepatic phosphorylase (GLYCOGEN PHOSPHORYLASE, LIVER FORM) activity.

An x-linked recessive hepatic glycogen storage disease resulting from lack of expression of phosphorylase-b-kinase activity. Symptoms are relatively mild; hepatomegaly, increased liver glycogen, and decreased leukocyte phosphorylase are present. Liver shrinkage occurs in response to glucagon.

An isoenzyme of GLYCOGEN PHOSPHORYLASE that catalyzes the degradation of GLYCOGEN in muscle. Mutation of the gene coding this enzyme is the cause of McArdle disease (GLYCOGEN STORAGE DISEASE TYPE V).
