August 3, 2022 - The National MPS Society announces that Xavier Becerra, the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has approved adding MPS II as a condition to the recommended uniform screening panel (RUSP) for newborns. This long-awaited acceptance follows the Advisory Committee on Heritable Disorders in Newborns and Children’s (ACHDNC) approval to move the nomination forward to DHHS after a considerable evidence review.
The 100 Patient Project is an inaugural part of a new registry for MPS and ML: Unlocking MPS. With an initial focus on MPS II, we are launching the 100 Patient Project to harness the revolutionary insights that can come from Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) to better understand how genetic variation can inform future improvements to MPS disease management.
