The purpose of this multi-center study is to learn more about health problems in people with phenylketonuria (PKU) and how to measure these problems over time. This knowledge will help researchers to design future studies to understand whether health problems improve when testing new drugs for PKU.
Subject to certain exclusion criteria, this study is enrolling participants ages 14 and up, who have PKU with a phenylalanine level greater than 600 μmol/L (10 mg/dL) and are not receiving drugs to treat PKU.
