  • ELAPRASE in Treatment-naïve Participants With Hunter Syndrome (Mucopolysaccharidosis [MPS] II)

    open to eligible males ages up to 6 years

    The main aim of this study is to evaluate the ability of a prophylactic immune tolerizing regimen (ITR) to prevent or reduce the development of high titer anti-idursulfase antibodies in treatment-naïve participants with Hunter syndrome. In this open label, single arm study, all participants will receive ELAPRASE treatment and a prophylactic ITR. Participants will be treated with ELAPRASE for up to 104 weeks. The prophylactic ITR will start 1 day prior to the start of ELAPRASE. The prophylactic ITR will consist of a 5-week cycle of: Rituximab (intravenously [IV], weekly for 4 weeks); Methotrexate (oral, 3 times per week for 5 weeks) and intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) (IV, every 4 weeks of the cycle). Following the completion of 1 cycle, an assessment will be made at Month 6, 12, and 18 regarding the need for administering another 5-week cycle of the ITR. Participants will be in the study for approximately 112 weeks (including 6 weeks for screening, up to 104 weeks for treatment, and 2 weeks for follow-up).

  • Cannabidiol in Sanfilippo Syndrome

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    The goal of this clinical trial is to test cannabidiol in Sanfilippo syndrome. The main questions it aims to answer are: 1) determine the safety of cannabidiol in Sanfilippo syndrome, and 2) explore the efficacy of cannabidiol in treating the neurobehavioral symptoms and functional outcomes of Sanfilippo syndrome. Each participant's caregiver will be asked to complete surveys related to the participant's behavior, mood, sleep, stooling, pain, and caregiver stress intermittently throughout the study. All participants will be enrolled into one of two cohorts based on enrollment order: 1. Sentinel Safety Cohort (first 5 participants) - all participants treated with Epidiolex (cannabidiol) 2. Controlled Cohort (next 30 participants) - participants randomized 1:1 (equal chance) to start treatment with Epidiolex (cannabidiol) or placebo for 16 weeks, followed by an 8-week washout period (no treatment). Participants then switch to the opposite treatment group for 16 weeks followed by all participants treated for 52 weeks with Epidiolex (cannabidiol).

  • Adalimumab in MPS I, II, and VI

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    Randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group, single-center study followed by open-label phase, to evaluate the effects of adalimumab compared to placebo on the change from baseline in joint and skeletal disease in children and adults with mucopolysaccharidosis (MPS) I, II or VI.
