Discussion of treatments for Tay Sachs Disease:

Genes and Disease by the National Center for Biotechnology (Excerpt)

Treatment of the late onset form of Tay-Sachs with a ganglioside synthesis inhibitor shows promise. The effectiveness this and other treatments on individuals with the infantile (the most common) form of the disease is extremely limited since the extent of neurological damage prior to birth is unknown. The difficulty in reversing such damage will make it hard to develop an effective treatment for the infantile form of the disease. It is hoped, however, that the latter onset forms of Tay-Sachs may prove responsive to treatment, and such treatment combined with the DNA and enzymatic screening programs currently in use will lead to the eventual control of this disease.
