About Sanfilippo Syndrome
Sanfilippo Syndrome is a terminal, neurodegenerative disease that causes children to lose all the skills they’ve gained, suffer seizures and movement disorders, experience pain and suffering, and then die. It is like Alzheimer’s, but in children.
Sanfilippo Syndrome is caused by a single gene defect which leads to lack of a necessary enzyme in the body. This lack of enzyme results in the build-up of toxic storage in every cell, and is especially harmful to the brain. This build-up causes a cascade of detrimental effects and ultimately death.
Currently there is no FDA-approved treatment or cure for Sanfilippo Syndrome. Cure Sanfilippo Foundation is working to accelerate discovery of a treatment or cure.
