New study on Infantile and later-onset paediatric Pompe disease
On October 1, the Canadian Paediatric Surveillance Program (CPSP) began a new study on Infantile and later-onset paediatric Pompe disease (PD), also known as glycogen storage disease type II (GSD-II). Pompe disease is an inherited, autosomal recessive disease that results from abnormal lysosomal storage of glycogen in body tissues. Early diagnosis is particularly important given that early treatment has shown to improve cardiomyopathy, ventilator function, and prolong survival in patients with infantile Pompe disease, and also improve muscle strength, pulmonary function, and survival in patients with later-onset Pompe disease. For more information and to report a case, refer to the protocol and case definition.
