AKU, NTBC, and VAMS®: fighting a rare metabolic disease

Posted by Neoteryx on Aug 15, 2019 5:51:00 AM

The Challenge of AKU

Alkaptonuria, or AKU, is a rare and less-studied inherited metabolic disorder. It results from a deficiency of homogentisic acid dioxygenase (HGD), part of the tyrosine degradation pathway. As of yet, there is no cure. However, The National Centre for Alkaptonuria, hosted by The Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals, is supporting international clinical trials that may help change that. And clinical chemist Joseph Taylor says that Volumetric Absorptive Microsampling (VAMS®) technology and Mitra® devices already play an important role in the relevant drug development process.
