WHAT IS POMPE DISEASE?
Pompe disease is a neuromuscular disorder that affects about one in every 40,000 live births.
The disease can manifest itself shortly after birth or at a later stage, when the patient is an older child or even an adult.
Symptoms include extreme muscle weakness and breathing difficulties.
Although there is no cure for the disease, several types of care and treatment can help.
Enzyme replacement therapy is one of them.
