Lysosomal Disorders Registry

Protocol Description

This program creates a database about treatment of patients with lysosomal storage disorders, such as Gaucher disease, Fabry disease, Pompe disease, and Mucopolysaccharidosis Type I (MPS I), also known as Hurler syndrome. By placing medical record information of many patients into a database registry for analysis, researchers hope to better understand the variability, progression and natural history of these disorders, with the ultimate goal of better guiding and assessing therapeutic interventions.
