Sanfilippo registry

What is it about?

A collaboration between rare disease families / patients to develop a registry and natural history study for type C and D.

Why is it important?

Sanfilippo syndrome is a rare disease with small number of patients and several groups working on potential treatments. Natural history studies will be needed for future clinical trial comparisons and registries will be needed to locate the patients for these trials.
