Phenylketonuria (PKU) Disease Understanding and Treatment Algorithm
Phenylketonuria (PKU) Overview
Phenylketonuria (PKU) is an inborn error of metabolism that is detectable during the first days of life via routine newborn screening. PKU is characterized by the absence or deficiency of an enzyme called phenylalanine hydroxylase (PAH), responsible for processing the amino acid phenylalanine. Amino acids are the chemical building blocks of proteins and are essential for proper growth and development. With normal PAH activity, phenylalanine is converted to another amino acid, tyrosine. However, when PAH is absent or deficient, phenylalanine accumulates and is toxic to the brain. Without treatment, most people with PKU would develop a severe intellectual disability. To prevent intellectual disability, treatment consists of a carefully controlled, phenylalanine-restricted diet beginning during the first days or weeks of life.
Phenylketonuria (PKU) Diagnosis
PKU diagnosis is achieved soon after birth by neonatal screening in most developed countries. In the countries where expanded newborn screening has been adopted, PKU is diagnosed by Phe and Tyr’s evaluation in neonatal dried blood spot (DBS) using tandem mass spectrometry. Virtually 100% of PKU subjects should be identified. The risk of false-negative has become more pressing with early postnatal discharge from the hospital for mothers and term infants. In such cases, Phe/Tyr ratio evaluation increases the test’s sensitivity and positive predictive value, avoiding the false-negative and lowering the false-positive risk. Although still utilized, other methods used for PKU neonatal screening do not allow the simultaneous evaluation of Tyr in neonatal DBS. Bacterial inhibition assay (Guthrie test) is a simple, inexpensive, and reliable test used for many decades; however, it is a manual, semi-quantitative test and is being replaced by other methods in all screening laboratories. Some laboratories use a fluorimetric test that is quantitative, automated, and reliable.
Note: Further details related to diagnosis are provided in the report.
Phenylketonuria (PKU) Treatment
PKU treatment aims to keep plasma phenylalanine levels within 120–360 mol/L (2–6 mg/dL), usually accomplished with a well-planned and regulated diet. Because phenylalanine is an essential amino acid, limiting the child’s intake must be done cautiously. A healthy diet can help avoid intellectual disability and neurological, behavioral, and dermatological issues. Some intellectual dysfunction can be predicted if treatment is not initiated early; however, some late-treated youngsters have performed admirably. According to studies, children with PKU who are treated with a low phenylalanine diet before the age of 3 months fare well, with an IQ in the normal range. The special diet should start as soon as PKU is diagnosed and continue for the rest of the person’s life. New medicines are being developed to lower PKU in the blood, but medical nutrition therapy is the main treatment for PKU. Treatment for PKU involves following a strict diet that is low in phenylalanine. A diet can prevent intellectual disability and neurological, behavioral, and dermatological problems. Babies with PKU need to be on a special formula as soon as possible, and it is advised to children and adults to eat a low-protein diet. Patients should avoid high-protein foods like milk, dairy, meats, eggs, nuts, soy, beans, and artificial sweeteners such as aspartame, which contains phenylalanine.
Phenylketonuria (PKU) Epidemiology
As the market is derived using the patient-based model, the Phenylketonuria (PKU) epidemiology chapter in the report provides historical as well as forecasted epidemiology segmented by total diagnosed prevalent cases of Phenylketonuria (PKU), mutation type-specific cases of Phenylketonuria (PKU), age-specific cases of Phenylketonuria (PKU), and severity-specific cases of Phenylketonuria (PKU) in the 7MM covering the United States, EU4 countries (Germany, France, Italy, and Spain) and the United Kingdom, and Japan from 2019 to 2032. The total diagnosed prevalent cases of Phenylketonuria (PKU) in the 7MM made up approximately 50,500 cases in 2022 and are projected to increase during the forecast period.
- The United States contributed to the largest diagnosed prevalent population of Phenylketonuria (PKU), acquiring ~36% of the 7MM in 2022.
- Among EU4 and the UK, Germany accounted for the highest number of Phenylketonuria (PKU) cases, followed by France, whereas Spain had the lowest number of cases in 2022.
- The mutation-specific cases of PKU were further divided into missense mutations, nonsense mutations, mutations at splice sites, deletions, and others. It was found that missense mutations formed the highest number of cases of PKU, whereas the others category formed the least number of cases of PKU, throughout the 7MM, in 2022.
- It was found that missense mutations formed the highest number of cases of PKU, i.e., ~11,300 cases, whereas the others category formed the least number of cases of PKU, i.e., ~850 cases in the US, in 2022.
Phenylketonuria (PKU) Drug Chapters
The drug chapter segment of the Phenylketonuria (PKU) report encloses a detailed analysis of Phenylketonuria (PKU)-marketed drugs and emerging (Phase-III and Phase II and Phase I/II) pipeline drugs. It also helps understand the Phenylketonuria (PKU) clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological actions, agreements and collaborations, approval and patent details, advantages and disadvantages of each included drug, and the latest news and press releases.
KUVAN (Sapropterin Hydrochloride): Asubio-Pharma/BioMarin-Pharmaceutical
KUVAN is a synthetic form of BH4, the cofactor for the enzyme phenylalanine hydroxylase (PAH). PAH hydroxylates Phe through an oxidative reaction to form tyrosine. In patients with PKU, PAH activity is absent or deficient. Treatment with BH4 can activate residual PAH enzyme activity, improve the normal oxidative metabolism of Phe, and decrease Phe levels in some patients.
KUVAN is used in conjunction with a Phe-restricted diet to reduce blood phenylalanine (Phe) levels in patients with hyperphenylalaninemia (HPA) caused by tetrahydrobiopterin (BH4) responsive PKU. In January 2004, KUVAN was granted ODD by the FDA for the treatment of PKU. As far as the patent of KUVAN is concerned, BioMarin holds patents in Europe related to KUVAN that are valid until at least 2024. There are generic versions of KUVAN approved by the FDA, manufactured by Dr. Reddy’s, Par Pharma, and Annora Pharma.
PALYNZIQ (pegvaliase-pqpz/rAvPAL-PEG/BMN 165): BioMarin Pharmaceutical
PALYNZIQ (pegvaliase-pqpz) injectable is the first FDA-approved enzyme replacement medicine for people with PKU who have uncontrolled blood Phe levels exceeding 600 mol/L (10 mg/dL) despite existing treatment. PALYNZIQ is a once-daily self-administered medication that works independently of the phenylalanine hydroxylase (PAH) enzyme, making it an option for all eligible adult PKU patients. In October 2020, the US FDA approved the supplemental biologics license application to increase the maximum allowable dose of 60 mg with PALYNZIQ injection for treating adults with PKU.
Note: Detailed current therapies assessment will be provided in the full Phenylketonuria (PKU) report.
Sepiapterin (PTC923): PTC Therapeutics
PTC923 is an oral formulation of synthetic sepiapterin, a precursor to intracellular tetrahydrobiopterin, a key enzyme cofactor in the metabolism and synthesis of several metabolic products. Sepiapterin reductase is an enzyme involved in the manufacture of tetrahydrobiopterin, which has been shown in limited studies to regulate tumor growth.
Sepiapterin, a natural precursor of BH4, is a more stable molecule that is more readily transported across cellular membranes, giving it a potentially considerable advantage over BH4 as a treatment for disorders associated with BH4 deficiency. In May 2021, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and European Commission (EC) granted Orphan Drug Designation (ODD) for PTC923 to treat patients with hyperphenylalaninemia.
PTC923 has been shown to induce a larger increase in humans in circulating BH4 vs. sapropterin dihydrochloride. Sapropterin reduces blood phenylalanine (Phe) by =20–30% in a minority of subjects with PKU. This was according to a Phase II randomized, multicenter, three-period crossover, open-label, active-controlled, all-comers (regardless of phenylalanine hydroxylase [PAH] variants) comparison of PTC923 60 mg/kg, PTC923 20 mg/kg and sapropterin 20 mg/kg in 24 adults with phenylketonuria (PKU) and hyperphenylalaninemia.
This drug has a similar mechanism of action to the approved drug KUVAN and has better efficacy when compared to KUVAN due to greater mean change in Phe baseline levels.
SYNB1934 is an orally administered, non-systemically absorbed drug candidate being studied as a potential biotherapeutic for phenylketonuria (PKU), an inherited metabolic disease marked by an inability to break down the amino acid phenylalanine (Phe), which can be neurotoxic. Lifelong, consistent control of low Phe levels is required to avoid PKU’s serious risks and complications. Treatment options for PKU are currently limited, with a majority of individuals with PKU in need of treatment or not adequately responding to treatment.
SYNB1934 has a novel mechanism of action. The drug reduces levels of Phe in people with PKU by consuming Phe in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, using genetic engineering of the well-characterized probiotic E. coli Nissle. Findings to date support the potential for an oral, efficacious, safe, convenient, and flexible treatment option for PKU.
Recently, in January 2023, SYNB1934 was granted Rare Pediatric Disease Designation (RPDD) by the US FDA for the potential treatment of phenylketonuria (PKU).
It was found that both the drugs (PTC923 and SYNB1934) had promising safety and efficacy according to the Phase II trials. The results of the Phase-III trials will further validate the safety and efficacy of these drugs.
Note: Detailed emerging therapies assessment will be provided in the final report.
Drug Class Insights
The existing Phenylketonuria treatment is mainly dominated by dietary supplements, a low-protein diet, and KUVAN, administered in conjugation with the supplements.
KUVAN belongs to the class of drugs called cofactors. It works by helping the body to break down phenylalanine so it will not build up in the blood. Clinical trials indicate that, depending on their PAH gene mutation, a subset of children with classic PKU respond to tetrahydrobiopterin (BH4) therapy. Sapropterin (synthetic BH4) is a cofactor for the enzyme phenylalanine hydroxylase. (PAH). Sapropterin is a synthetic version of BH4, which functions as a cofactor in the enzyme phenylalanine hydroxylase. (PAH). PAH hydroxylates phenylalanine (Phe) through an oxidative process to create tyrosine. Patients with PKU have low or no PAH activity. In some cases, BH4 treatment can activate remaining PAH, improve normal oxidative metabolism of Phe, and lower Phe levels. It should be combined with a Phe-restricted diet.
PALYNZIQ (pegvaliase) is an enzyme used to treat phenylketonuria in patients with phenylalanine levels that are too high on the current treatment. PEGylated phenylalanine ammonia-lyase (PAL) replaces poor phenylalanine hydroxylase (PAH) enzyme activity in PKU patients and lowers blood phenylalanine levels. Pegvaliase-pqpz is a homotetrameric protein of recombinant phenylalanine ammonia lyase (rAvPAL) and N-hydroxysuccinimide (NHS)-methoxypolyethylene glycol. (PEG).
Phenylketonuria (PKU) Market Outlook
Phenylketonuria (PKU) is an uncommon hereditary condition in which the body accumulates an amino acid called phenylalanine; amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Newborns with PKU do not have any symptoms at first; nevertheless, newborns commonly acquire signs of PKU without treatment within a few months. PKU patients can alleviate symptoms and avoid complications by following a particular diet and using drugs.
If treatment is not initiated early, some intellectual dysfunction can be predicted. The main strategy to treat PKU is following a diet restricting phenylalanine-containing foods; newborns with PKU may be fed breast milk. They must also take a particular formula called Lofenalac. A safe amount of phenylalanine varies from person to person with PKU and can change over time. The objective is not to ingest more than the phenylalanine required for optimal growth and bodily functioning. Because phenylalanine is found in almost all natural proteins, it is impossible to appropriately restrict the diet using only natural foods without jeopardizing health.
As a result, phenylalanine-free dietary preparations are beneficial. Protein-rich foods, such as meat, milk, fish, and cheese, are often prohibited from a diet. Low-protein foods, such as fruits, vegetables, and some grains, are naturally permitted in restricted quantities. People with PKU should also avoid the sweetener aspartame included in some meals, drinks, prescriptions, and supplements. When aspartame is digested, it releases phenylalanine, elevating the phenylalanine level in a person’s blood.
Another supplement that could be added to the PKU diet is neutral amino acid treatment, which comes in powder or tablet form. This supplement may inhibit some phenylalanine absorption, which may be a therapy option for adults with PKU. Consult your doctor or a dietitian to see if this supplement is acceptable for your diet.
As mentioned earlier, KUVAN and PALYNZIQ are the approved drugs for treating Phenylketonuria (PKU). KUVAN is an oral pharmaceutical formulation of BH4, a natural cofactor for the PAH enzyme that enhances the residual PAH enzyme’s activity in converting phenylalanine to tyrosine. KUVAN should be used in conjunction with a low-phenylalanine diet. PALYNZIQ is an injectable enzyme therapy for people on current medication who have uncontrolled blood phenylalanine levels.
Researchers and other scientists are investigating additional therapies for PKU. Two treatments are available for large neutral amino acid supplementation, which may help prevent phenylalanine from entering the brain, and enzyme replacement therapy, which employs a substance similar to the enzyme that normally breaks down phenylalanine.
The treatment of Phenylketonuria (PKU) is multifaceted. The current market has been segmented based on the prevailing treatment pattern across the 7MM, which presents minor variations in the overall prescription pattern. Sapropterin Hydrochloride, dietary supplements, and PALYNZIQ have been considered in the forecast model.
The expected launch of upcoming therapies and greater integration of newborn screening in various countries, medication in secondary care and other clinical settings, research on best methods for implementation, and an upsurge in awareness will eventually facilitate the development of effective treatment options. However, there are a few barriers to treatment due to limited treatment options, resulting in many untreated Phenylketonuria patients experiencing intellectual disability, seizures, and mental disorders. With KUVAN limited to BH4-responsive patients and PALYNZIQ limited by its unfavorable safety and tolerability profile, more than 70% of PKU patients currently lack access to any form of medical treatment must rely solely on dietary restrictions and supplements. As a result, there is an urgent need for more focused and comprehensive disease management that incorporates the fundamental P4 medicine principles (predictive, preventive, personalized, and participatory).
A few players like PTC Therapeutics (PTC923), Synlogic (SYNB1934), and others are evaluating their lead candidates for the treatment of Phenylketonuria (PKU). These therapies are expected to change the Phenylketonuria (PKU) treatment landscape.
- The total market size of Phenylketonuria (PKU) in the United States was approximately USD 410 million in 2022 and is projected to grow during the forecast period (2023–2032).
- According to the estimates, Japan recorded the least market share, i.e., around 1% of the total market size of phenylketonuria in the 7MM in 2022.
- Among the EU4 (Germany, France, Italy, Spain) and the UK, Germany had the maximum revenue share in 2022, while Spain had the lowest market share.
- In 2022, sapropterin hydrochloride captured the highest market size of Phenylketonuria (PKU) in the 7MM.

Further, the safety of the molecule is evaluated wherein the adverse events are majorly observed, and it sets a clear understanding of the side effects posed by the drug in the trials, directly affecting the safety of the molecule in the upcoming trials.
Market Access and Reimbursement
Reimbursement of rare disease therapies can be limited due to lack of supporting policies and funding, challenges of high prices, lack of specific approaches to evaluating rare disease drugs given limited evidence, and payers’ concerns about budget impact. The high cost of rare disease drugs usually has a limited impact on the budget due to the small number of eligible patients being prescribed the drug. The US FDA has approved several rare disease therapies in recent years. From a patient perspective, health insurance and payer coverage guidelines surrounding rare disease treatments restrict broad access to these treatments, leaving only a small number of patients who can bypass insurance and pay for products independently.
Since 1987, NORD has given assistance programs to patients who could not afford life-saving or life-sustaining medication. Medication, financial aid with insurance premiums and copays, diagnostic testing assistance, and travel assistance for clinical trials or consultations with disease specialists are all available through these programs. The report further provides detailed insights on the country-wise accessibility and reimbursement scenarios, cost-effectiveness scenario of approved therapies, programs making accessibility easier and out-of-pocket costs more affordable, insights on patients insured under federal or state government prescription drug programs, etc. NORD’s PKU patient assistance programs provide financial assistance to eligible individuals diagnosed with PKU who have limited resources to pay for out-of-pocket healthcare costs.
Several companies have various reimbursement systems, strategies, and insurance policies to assist them in dealing with the prescription expense burden.
The KUVAN copay support program pays for all copay costs associated with KUVAN prescriptions, up to the annual maximum, for as long as the patient is in therapy and is eligible for treatment. The program may be terminated or modified at any moment. The PALYNZIQ copay assistance program also works similarly.
