Dublin, Feb. 07, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "MPS-III (Sanfilippo Syndrome) Forecast in 23 Major Markets 2017-2027" report to their offering.

Mucopolysaccharidosis-III, also known as MPS-III or Sanfilippo syndrome, is part of the Mucopolysaccharidoses (MPS) disorders - a group of rare genetic disorders caused by deficiencies of lysosomal enzymes. These are in-born errors of metabolism, and are autosomal recessive genetic disorders.

There are 4 distinct sub-types of MPS-III (A, B, C & D), with patients ranging from mild to severe in terms of symptoms. Prevalence of the different subtypes varies markedly country to country.

This report is built using data and information sourced from the proprietary patient segmentation database. To generate accurate patient population estimates, the database utilizes a combination of several world class sources that deliver the most up to date information form patient registries, clinical trials and epidemiology studies. All of the sources used to generate the data and analysis have been identified in the report.

This report provides the current prevalent population for MPS-III across 23 Major Markets (USA, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, Brazil, Japan, India, China, Australia, Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Turkey, Greece, Portugal, Poland, Estonia, Russia, Czech Republic) split by gender and 5-year age cohort.
