The purpose of this multi-center, international observational study is to help researchers understand the progression of long-chain fatty acid oxidation disorders (LC-FAOD) over time. LC-FAOD are inherited conditions in which the body is unable to break down fats present in normal foods to produce energy. The study will collect information for up to 10 years from adult and pediatric participants with a confirmed diagnosis of LC-FAOD. Although no drug will be provided to participants as part of this study, researchers will assess the long-term safety and effectiveness of Dojolvi® (triheptanoin) in participants who use Dojolvi as part of their treatment for LC-FAOD.
Subject to certain exclusion criteria, this study is accepting people of all ages who have been diagnosed with a LC-FAOD.
Males and Females: All ages
Study participants will visit the study site 8 times for examinations and have 4 telephone follow-up visits during the 10 years of their enrollment.
Duration: 10 years
