Via Keenan's Room: "MPS VI is a rare inherited lysosomal storage disorder estimated to occur once in every 340,000 live births. As a result of a deficiency of the enzyme N-acetylgalactosamine 4-sulfatase (arylsulfatase B), individuals with MPS VI are unable to breakdown substances known as glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), which are found in connective tissue throughout the body. The GAGs accumulate in the lysosomes of cells, leading to multi systemic abnormalities and numerous clinical manifestations including respiratory and cardiovascular complications, gastrointestinal symptoms, joint stiffness and restricted movement, and a loss of vision and hearing. MPS VI is a progressive disease and leads to severe disability and a shortened life span in virtually all cases. There are less than 1,100 people worldwide who have the disease."
