Mucopolysaccharidosis-II, also known as MPS-II or Hunter syndrome, is part of the Mucopolysaccharidoses (MPS) disorders - a group of rare genetic disorders caused by deficiencies of lysosomal enzymes. MPS II is caused by deficiency of the lysosomal enzyme iduronate-2-sulphatase (IDS gene) leading to progressive accumulation of glycosaminoglycans in nearly all cell types, tissues and organs. It is a progressively debilitating disorder; however, the rate of progression varies among affected individuals.
Unlike other MPS disorders, MPS-II nearly exclusively affects males since it is an X-linked disorder. Few cases of females have been noted; however these cases tend to milder and very rare. MPS-II is typically classified as Severe (with neurological / cognitive impairment) or attenuated / mild (without neurological / cognitive impairment).
This report provides the current prevalent population for MPS-II across 26 Major Markets (USA, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, Ireland, Brazil, Mexico, Japan, South Korea, China, India, Australia, Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Turkey, Portugal, Bulgaria, Poland, Estonia, Russia and Czech Republic) split by 5-year age cohort. Along with the current prevalence, the report also contains a disease overview of the risk factors, disease diagnosis and prognosis along with specific variations by geography and ethnicity.
Main symptoms and co-morbidities for MPS-II include:
- Severe airway obstruction
