We have created this website to bring people who are affected and involved with Morquio B (MPS IV B) together so that they may form contacts, share information, and help us in finding a treatment for this rare disease.
It is our goal to raise funds for research and develop a better understanding of this disease. It is our hope that this research will lead to a treatment.
It is unclear how many people are actually affected with Morquio B because until recently, there has been no registry. We have just successfully funded the first formal registry for Morquio B, and we are here to be a link for those who are affected to some very knowledgeable researchers who are already studying this disease.
Please visit www.morquiob.org to view the new registry for Morquio B and to become an important part of finding a treatment.
If you wish to be a part of our efforts, let us know how we can contact you.
Together we will find a treatment.
