An International Registry for Morquio-B Disease hosted at BC Children’s Hospital

Morquio-B-Disease is an ultra-rare form of late-onset GM1-Gangliosidosis, characterized by bone disease resembling Morquio-A Disease.

Various research consortia are currently developing treatments for this condition.

Funding from the Priest Family Foundation (www.morquiob.com) allows us to collect natural history data, which will be most essential for the future design of clinical trials.

If you have patients with Morquio-B-Disease or with late-onset GM1-Gangliosidosis, please contact us.

Every single patient is important.
