Longitudinal study of bone and endocrine disease in children with MPS I, II, and VI


This multi-centered, longitudinal study of male and female participants with MPS I, II, and VI has an overall objective to document the progression of skeletal disease and identify biomarkers through the use of bone imaging, range of motion tests, and biomarker analysis that either predict disease severity or could be used as therapeutic targets.
