EARLY DIAGNOSIS OF MUCOPOLYSACCHARIDOSIS (MPS) 
CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE


The Spot The Early Signs program aims to fight under-diagnosed or late-diagnosed conditions for which treatments are available and where early detection and early treatment could make a significant difference in the condition's development, the quality of life and the survival of patients. 


Misdiagnosis of Mucopolysaccharidosis (MPS) results in late diagnosis and the late start of treatment, which has significant consequences on long-term outcomes. This gap usually results in confusing symptoms with other conditions, most notably trying to address symptoms directly and therefore delaying actual diagnosis and treatment, or referring the patient to the wrong pediatric specialties causing further delays in the condition’s management chain.
To assist EIP has launched the Spot the Early Signs Resource Centre to spread education in local medical communities, and further develop and expand the trained on MPS frontline healthcare professionals network. The Resource Centre allows members to collaborate, engage and interact and where they can easily find information and education when needed - both for members and to share with colleagues. All recorded webinars are available to view without charge via the Resources Section of the site, along with further information on the FacultyCampaigns and how you can Join Us to make your colleagues ‘think rare’ at every opportunity.
