The Intensively Follow-Up Examinations for Asymptomatic MPS I Infants in Taiwan
study id #: NCT04958070
condition: MPS I
status: Not yet recruitingpurpose:
MPS I newborn screening has been executed in Taiwan nationwide since August 2015. Infants who failed the recheck at recall were referred to MacKay Memorial Hospital for a detailed confirmatory diagnosis. Urinary first-line biochemistry examinations including urinary GAG quantification (DMB/Cre. ratio), two-dimensional electrophoresis (2-D EP), and tandem mass spectrometry assay for predominant disaccharides derived from GAGs (i.e. CS, DS, HS, and KS) were performed. If the results were positive, a confirmative diagnosis was made according to the results of leukocyte enzymatic assay and molecular DNA analysis. Up to January 31, 2019, a total of 390,793 infants had been analyzed for MPS I, in those 11 suspicious cases were referred to MacKay Memorial Hospital for confirmation. The recall rates of MPS I was 0.0028%. Four of the 11 infants were confirmed to have MPS I. The prevalence rates of MPS I was 1.02 per 100,000 live births, respectively. Infants suspected of having MPS with a positive laboratory diagnosis but without any typical, clinical manifestations are not conformed to receive ERT under the treatment guideline of ERT for MPS in Taiwan. Distinctly, the clinical manifestations of MPS are irreversible and would be worse progressively while the symptoms have shown up. Receiving ERT at this time would effectively prevent the progression of illness, but, cannot rescue or reform the irreversible physical problems. By proceeding and undergoing an intensively long-term regular physical and laboratory examinations for asymptomatic infants with MPS I can effectively control the possibility of giving an ERT in a timely fashion.

study description: The study hypothesis is to proceed and to undergo an intensively long-term clinical management and laboratory examinations for asymptomatic infants with MPS I in order to be able to give an enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) in a timely fashion. The overall objectives of this study are summarized as follows, including: 1. To plan a three-month or six-month interval of recall process depending on the judgment of individual case by pediatric geneticist. 2. To recall the asymptomatic MPS I infants back to MacKay Memorial Hospital for MPS follow-up examinations, including regular physical examinations for the earliest presenting symptoms such as otitis media, abdominal or inguinal hernia, and coarse facial features, as well as the urinary biochemistry glycosaminoglycan (GAG) tests. 3. To give ERT in time whenever the typical MPS signs or symptoms showed up. 4. To achieve the aim of newborn screening for MPS, "Early detection, making early diagnosis, and providing early therapy can effectively prevent the development of severe clinical manifestations".
- Find signs or symptoms of disease onset
The primary endpoint of this study is to find out any signs or symptoms of disease onset at the earliest time in order to diminish the irreversible developmental damage has taken place if the intervention of ERT is giving timely.
