  • Overview

    Previously, patients could only receive palliative care for symptoms associated with Hunter syndrome, a rare but serious genetic disorder that inhibits the body’s ability to break down specific complex carbohydrates. Now, a new enzyme therapy is making it possible to prevent Hunter syndrome manifestation, typically occurring as early as year two, which dramatically improves long-term quality of life. How quickly do patients show improvement with enzyme therapy? What are the most common side effects? Join host Dr. Mark Nolan Hill for an interesting conversation with Dr. Joseph Muenzer, professor of pediatrics and genetics at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine, and one of the world’s leading experts on Hunter syndrome.
