Mucopolysaccharidosis
Team MPS Giving Page

Mucopolysaccharidosis (MPS) and ML are genetic lysosomal storage diseases (LSD) caused by the body’s inability to produce specific enzymes. Normally, the body uses enzymes to break down and recycle materials in cells. In individuals with MPS and ML, the missing or insufficient enzyme prevents the proper recycling process, resulting in the storage of materials in virtually every cell of the body. The National MPS Society supports these known MPS and ML diseases: MPS I, MPS II, MPS IIIA, MPS IIIB, MPS IIIC, MPS IIID, MPS IVA, MPSIVB, MPS VI, MPS VII, MPS IX, ML II/III.
