Abstract

The transition to home infusion therapy is described in 11 patients with mucopolysaccharide (MPS) disorders initially treated with enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) in an out-patient infusion center. Home therapy was well tolerated with no infusion-related reactions (IRR) occurring in 671 patient-weeks of treatment. In addition, compliance with the weekly treatment regimen was improved in patients on home therapy.
