INTRODUCTION: The metabolic errors are caused due to lack or deficiency of key enzyme or coenzyme of an intermediary metabolic pathway causing urea cycle defects, aminoacidopathies, Organic acidemias, fatty acid oxidation defects and errors in energy metabolism.
"We believe that the neural aberrations of HPRT deficiency are the consequence of these combined, multi-system metabolic errors. And since some of these aberrations are also found in other neurological disorders, we think they almost certainly play some role in causing the neurological abnormalities in diseases like Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Huntington's and possibly others," Friedmann said.
* Children born with metabolic errors no longer are doomed to succumb before their childbearing years.
If these metabolic errors are detected at birth, through screening of the small blood sample taken from a baby's heel, the child, and his or her family, can be saved from potentially life-altering consequences.
