Population Pharmacokinetic Analysis of N-acetylcysteine in Pediatric Patients with Inhe...
Journal of Clinical Pharmacology; Sahasrabudhe SA, Kartha RV et. al.

Jul 19th, 2021 - N-acetylcysteine (NAC) has been utilized in patients with cerebral adrenoleukodystrophy(cALD) as an antioxidant agent in association with hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT). However, an understanding of the pharmacokinetic characteristics o...

Endocrine dysfunction in adrenoleukodystrophy.
Handbook of Clinical Neurology; Engelen M, Kemp S et. al.

Jul 17th, 2021 - X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) is a peroxisomal disorder caused by mutations in the ABCD1 gene and characterized by impaired very long-chain fatty acid beta-oxidation. Clinically, male patients develop adrenal failure and a progressive myelop...

Modulation of mitochondrial and inflammatory homeostasis through RIP140 is neuroprotect...
Neuropathology and Applied Neurobiology; Ranea-Robles P, Galino J et. al.

Jul 9th, 2021 - Mitochondrial dysfunction and inflammation are at the core of axonal degeneration in several multifactorial neurodegenerative diseases, including multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease. The transcriptional coregulator RIP140/NRIP1...

Imaging in X-Linked Adrenoleukodystrophy.
Neuropediatrics van de Stadt SIW, Huffnagel IC et. al.

Jul 1st, 2021 - Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the gold standard for the detection of cerebral lesions in X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD). ALD is one of the most common peroxisomal disorders and is characterized by a defect in degradation of very long ch...

Retrospective evaluation of patients with X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy with a wide ran...
Journal of Pediatric Endocrinology & Metabolism : JPEM; Olgac A, Kasapkara ÇS et. al.

Jun 24th, 2021 - X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy (X-ALD), is a peroxisomal inborn error of metabolism caused due to the loss of function variants of ABCD1 gene that leads to accumulation of very long chain fatty acids (VLCFAs) in several tissues including the neurol...

A Pilot Study of Vitamin D in Boys With X-linked Adrenoleukodystrophy

Nov 14th, 2019 - Prior research suggests that higher vitamin D levels in the blood are associated with reduced brain inflammation among individuals with multiple sclerosis, a disease that is similar to the cerebral demyelinating form of ALD. However, serious side ...

Lentiviral Gene Therapy for X-ALD

Sep 19th, 2019 - X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy (X-ALD) is a devastating neurological disorder caused by mutations in the ABCD1 gene that encodes a peroxisomal ATP-binding cassette transporter (ABCD1). ABCD1 is responsible for transport of CoA-activated very long-c...

HSCT for High Risk Inherited Inborn Errors

Jul 11th, 2019 - Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation has proven effective therapy for individuals with adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD), metachromatic leukodystrophy (MLD) or globoid cell leukodystrophy (GLD, or Krabbe disease). However, for patients with advanced o...

A Clinical Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of MIN-102 (IMP) in Male AMN Patients.

Mar 25th, 2019 - This is a Phase II/III, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter, two parallel-group study in male patients with the AMN phenotype of X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy (X-ALD) to assess the efficacy and safety of MIN-102 treatment. St...

Exercise Study of Function and Pathology for Women With X-linked Adrenoleukodystrophy

Aug 29th, 2018 - X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy (X-ALD), a [sex-linked] progressive neurodegenerative disease, is caused by a defect in the ABCD1 gene. The disease is expressed in multiple ways, but the most common adult form is adrenomyeloneuropathy (AMN), which r...
