The objectives of this program are: to characterize and describe the Mucopolysaccharidosis IV type A (MPS IVA) population as a whole, including the heterogeneity, progression, and natural history of MPS IVA; to evaluate the long-term effectiveness and safety of Vimizim®, including, but not limited to, the occurrence of serious hypersensitivity reactions, anaphylaxis, and changes in antibody status; to help the medical community with the development of recommendations for monitoring MPS IVA patients and reports on patient outcomes to optimize patient care; to collect data on other treatment paradigms, and evaluate the prevalences of their use and their effectiveness; to characterize the effects and safety of Vimizim treatment 5 years from enrollment in the Registry for patients under 5 years of age; to monitor pregnancy exposure, including maternal, neonatal, and infant outcomes; and to monitor patients who have completed the MOR-005 and MOR-007 clinical trials. These patients will be encouraged to enroll in the applicable Registry Substudy and will be monitored using the MOR-005 and MOR-007 assessment schedules, respectively.
