engineered enzymes for better healthcare

Phenylketonuria (PKU) is a result of an enzyme defect that prevents metabolism of the amino acid phenylalanine and occurs in approximately 1 in every 15,000 (1 in 4,500 in Ireland). PKU can cause mental and motor retardation, poor growth and seizures. With early detection and proper dietary treatment growth and development of infants with PKU should be normal.
