Enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) and allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) are standard treatments for some mucopolysaccharidoses. Nevertheless, ERT is not curative, and HSCT is associated with significant mortality and morbidity, leaving a substantial disease burden of brain and skeletal manifestations. To overcome these limitations, different gene therapy (GT) strategies are under preclinical and clinical development. Data from ex-vivo GT clinical trials have demonstrated encouraging biochemical and early clinical outcomes. In-vivo GT, based on local brain delivery or systemic intravenous injections, resulted in biochemical and clinical stabilization of the disease.

Abstract

Enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) and allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) are standard treatments for some mucopolysaccharidoses. Nevertheless, ERT is not curative, and HSCT is associated with significant mortality and morbidity, leaving a substantial disease burden of brain and skeletal manifestations. To overcome these limitations, different gene therapy (GT) strategies are under preclinical and clinical development. Data from ex-vivo GT clinical trials have demonstrated encouraging biochemical and early clinical outcomes. In-vivo GT, based on local brain delivery or systemic intravenous injections, resulted in biochemical and clinical stabilization of the disease.
