This double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized study is designed to evaluate the safety and therapeutic effects of sapropterin dihydrochloride on neuropsychiatric symptoms in subjects with PKU.
Phenylketonuria (PKU) results from deficient phenylalanine hydroxylase (PAH) activity and leads to toxic phenylalanine (Phe) accumulation in patients with PKU causing mental retardation, microcephaly, delayed speech, seizures, psychiatric symptoms and behavioral abnormalities. Although for most PKU patients early initiation of dietary treatment prevents severe complications, discontinuation of dietary restrictions at an early age is associated with poor cognitive development and neuropsychiatric disorders are present even in early-treated and well controlled PKU patients.
This study, PKU-016, will be conducted in PKU patients to evaluate the therapeutic effects of sapropterin dihydrochloride on the symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), depression, and anxiety.

A condition occurring in untreated or partially treated females with PHENYLKETONURIA when they become pregnant. This may result in damages to the FETUS, including MICROCEPHALY; MENTAL RETARDATION; congenital heart disease; FETAL GROWTH RETARDATION; and CRANIOFACIAL ABNORMALITIES. (From Am J Med Genet 1997 Mar 3;69(1):89-95)
A group of autosomal recessive disorders marked by a deficiency of the hepatic enzyme PHENYLALANINE HYDROXYLASE or less frequently by reduced activity of DIHYDROPTERIDINE REDUCTASE (i.e., atypical phenylketonuria). Classical phenylketonuria is caused by a severe deficiency of phenylalanine hydroxylase and presents in infancy with developmental delay; SEIZURES; skin HYPOPIGMENTATION; ECZEMA; and demyelination in the central nervous system. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p952).
