What is Hunter Syndrome? – Also Known as MPS II

This video provides an overview of Hunter syndrome, or mucopolysaccharidosis II (MPS II) — a serious genetic disorder that primarily affects males. In Hunter Syndrome, GAGs build up in cells throughout the body due to the enzyme iduronate-2-sulfatase (I2S) not working properly or missing altogether. This buildup interferes with the way certain cells and organs in the body function and leads to a number of serious symptoms.
