What is Mucopolysaccharidosis type 3?

What is Mucopolysaccharidosis type 3?

  • Mucopolysaccharidosis type 3: A rare inherited biochemical disorder characterized by the accumulation of mucopolysaccharides (glycosaminoglycans). This occurs due to there being not enough of the enzyme called N-acetyl-alpha-glucosaminidase (B) which is needed to break down the mucopolysacharides. The mucopolysaccharides are then deposited in various tissues.

Ophanet, a consortium of European partners, currently defines a condition rare when it affects 1 person per 2,000. They list Mucopolysaccharidosis type 3 as a "rare disease".
