Hunter Syndrome Understanding
Hunter Syndrome: Overview
Hunter syndrome is a mucopolysaccharide disease caused by the enzymatic deficiency of iduronate-2-sulfatase (I2S). This is also called as mucopolysaccharoidosis Type II. Hunter syndrome is a hereditary disease in which the breakdown of a mucopolysaccharide (a chemical that is widely distributed in the body outside of cells) is defective. This chemical builds up and causes a characteristic facial appearance, abnormal function of multiple organs, and in severe cases, early death. In the neuronopathic form of this disorder, physical and mental development reaches a peak at 2-4 years of age with subsequent deterioration. Recurrent upper respiratory infections, a chronic runny nose, hearing impairment, liver and spleen enlargement, inguinal and abdominal hernias, joint stiffness and multiplex dysplasia, compression of tendons in the wrist (carpal tunnel syndrome), and joint stiffness which can result in reduction of hand function, growth failure and valvular disease commonly occur with this form of MPS II. Manifestations of MPS II may include not inflammatory joint stiffness, with associated restriction of movements; and coarsening of facial features, including thickening of the lips, tongue (macroglossia), and nostrils.
Patients with MPSII disease accumulate heparin and dermatan sulfates in the urines. Molecular genetic testing for mutations in the IDS gene is available to confirm the diagnosis. It is always important to rule out a multiple sulfatase deficiency by testing other sulfatase enzymes. Treatment for Hunter syndrome depends on the symptoms. An enzyme replacement therapy, idursulfase (Elaprase), was approved in 2006 by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a treatment for MPS II.

Hunter Syndrome Emerging Drugs Chapters
This segment of the Hunter Syndrome report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in different stages of clinical development, including phase 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.
Hunter Syndrome Emerging Drugs
DNL310: Denali Therapeutics Inc
DNL310, or ETV:IDS, is a recombinant form of the iduronate 2-sulfatase (“IDS”) enzyme engineered to cross the blood-brain barrier using Denali’s proprietary ETV technology. DNL310 is intravenously administered and intended to improve overall clinical manifestations of Hunter Syndrome, including neurological symptoms, which are not adequately addressed by currently approved therapies. The FDA has granted orphan drug status and a rare pediatric disease designation to Denali Therapeutics pipeline candidate, DNL310. The drug is being evaluated in Phase I/II clinical trial to treat Hunter Syndrome.
RGX-121: Regenxbio Inc.
RGX-121 is a product candidate for the treatment of Mucopolysaccharidosis Type II (MPS II), also known as Hunter Syndrome. RGX-121 is designed to use the AAV9 vector to deliver the human iduronate-2-sulfatase gene (IDS) which encodes the iduronate-2-sulfatase (I2S) enzyme to the central nervous system (CNS). Delivery of the IDS gene within cells in the CNS could provide a permanent source of secreted I2S beyond the blood-brain barrier, allowing for long-term cross correction of cells throughout the CNS. RGX-121 has received orphan drug product, rare pediatric disease and Fast Track designations from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
