Bardet-Biedl Syndrome Understanding

Bardet-Biedl Syndrome: Overview

Bardet–Biedl syndrome (BBS) is a rare autosomal recessive ciliopathy. The disease mapped to at least twenty different genes (BBS1-BBS20), follow oligogenic inheritance pattern. BBS proteins localizes to the centerosome and regulates the biogenesis and functions of the cilia. In BBS, the functioning of various systemic organs (with ciliated cells) gets deranged and results in systemic manifestations. The BBS phenotype evolves slowly throughout the first decade of life. As a result, most patients are diagnosed in late childhood or early adulthood.


The symptoms of Bardet-Biedl Syndrome include:

  • Truncal obesity
  • Intellectual impairment
  • Renal anomalies
  • Polydactyly
  • Retinal degeneration
  • Hypogenitalism


A diagnosis of Bardet-Biedl Syndrome is based upon characteristic findings and clinical findings. Genetic testing may help in confirming the diagnosis for some patients. Multigene panels offer the most effective approach in achieving molecular confirmation of BBS. Unless the diagnosis is suspected based on antenatal imaging revealing polydactyly and structural renal abnormalities, BBS is usually not diagnosed before the patient starts to develop the visual problems characteristic of rod-cone dystrophy.


The treatment for BBS patients is focused on the specific signs and symptoms of each individual. Some of the physical abnormalities associated with BBS can be corrected with surgery. Management of obesity may include education, diet, and exercise. The eye problems can be managed with early evaluation by a specialist to provide vision aids and mobility training. Intellectual disability includes early intervention, special education along with speech therapy.

Bardet-Biedl Syndrome Emerging Drugs Chapters

This segment of the Bardet-Biedl Syndrome report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in different stages of clinical development, including phase III, II, I, preclinical and Discovery. It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.

Bardet-Biedl Syndrome Emerging Drugs

  • Setmelanotide: Rhythm Pharmaceuticals

Setmelanotide is an investigational, melanocortin-4 receptor (MC4R) agonist in late-stage clinical development. It restores the impaired MC4R pathway function, caused by genetic variants that occur upstream of the receptor. Setmelanotide has the potential to reduce weight and hunger. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted Breakthrough Therapy Designation to Setmelanotide for the treatment of Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS). Also, the FDA and European Commission has granted Orphan Drug Designation for Setmelanotide for the treatment of BBS.
