Phenylketonuria Understanding

Phenylketonuria: Overview

Phenylketonuria (PKU) is an inborn error of metabolism that is detectable during the first days of life via routine newborn screening. PKU is inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern. PKU is characterized by absence or deficiency of an enzyme called phenylalanine hydroxylase (PAH), responsible for processing the amino acid phenylalanine. Infants with PKU typically appear normal at birth. With early screening and dietary treatment, affected individuals may never show symptoms of PKU. Symptoms may include vomiting, irritability, and/or a red skin rash with small pimples. Neurological symptoms are present in some untreated patients with PKU, including seizures, abnormal muscle movements, tight muscles, increased reflexes, involuntary movements, or tremor. The goal of treatment for PKU is to keep plasma phenylalanine levels within 120-360 umol/L (2-6 mg/dL). This is generally achieved through carefully planned and monitored diet.

"Phenylketonuria - Pipeline Insight, 2021" report outlays comprehensive insights of present scenario and growth prospects across the indication. A detailed picture of the Phenylketonuria pipeline landscape is provided which includes the disease overview and Phenylketonuria treatment guidelines. The assessment part of the report embraces, in depth Phenylketonuria commercial assessment and clinical assessment of the pipeline products under development.

Phenylketonuria Emerging Drugs

SYNB1618: Synlogic

SYNB1618 is an oral investigational Synthetic Biotic medicine designed to break down phenylalanine in the GI tract as a potential treatment for patients with PKU. A solid oral lyophilized powder formulation was evaluated in a Phase 1 study in healthy volunteers. The drug is currently being evaluated in Phase II stage of development for the treatment of Phenylketonuria.

HMI-102: Homology Medicines

HMI-102 is a gene therapy that uses a harmless adeno-associated viral vector called AAVHSC15, developed from human stem cells, to deliver a functional copy of the PAH gene to cells in the liver. It is designed to produce a lasting effect after a single intravenous (into-the-vein) dose. The drug is in Phase I/II clinical trials for phenylketonuria.
