  • Mucopolysaccharidosis

    BACKGROUND: Mucopolysaccharidosis I is a lysosomal storage disease caused by a deficiency of the enzyme alpha-L-iduronidase. We evaluated the effect of enzyme-replacement therapy with recombinant human alpha-L-iduronidase in patients with this disorder. METHODS: We treated 10 patients with mucopolysaccharidosis I[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
