Newborn screening for mucopolysaccharidoses: a pilot study of measurement of glycosaminoglycans by tandem mass spectrometry.

ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND:Mucopolysaccharidoses (MPS) are a group of inborn errors of metabolism that are progressive and usually result in irreversible skeletal, visceral, and/or brain damage, highlighting a need for early diagnosis. METHODS:This pilot study analyzed 2862 dried blood spots (DBS) from newborns and 14 DBS from newborn patients with MPS (MPS I, n?=?7; MPS II, n?=?2; MPS III, n?=?5). Disaccharides were produced from polymer GAGs by digestion with chondroitinase B, heparitinase, and keratanase II. Heparan sulfate (0S, NS), dermatan sulfate (DS) and mono- and di-sulfated KS were measured by liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS). Median absolute deviation (MAD) was used to determine cutoffs to distinguish patients from controls. Cutoffs were defined as median?+?7× MAD from general newborns. RESULTS:The cutoffs were as follows: HS-0S?>?90 ng/mL; HS-NS?>?23 ng/mL, DS?>?88 ng/mL; mono-sulfated KS?>?445 ng/mL; di-sulfated KS?>?89 ng/mL and ratio di-KS in total KS?>?32 %. All MPS I and II samples were above the cutoffs for HS-0S, HS-NS, and DS, and all MPS III samples were above cutoffs for HS-0S and HS-NS. The rate of false positives for MPS I and II was 0.03 % based on a combination of HS-0S, HS-NS, and DS, and for MPS III was 0.9 % based upon a combination of HS-0S and HS-NS. CONCLUSIONS:Combination of levels of two or more different GAGs improves separation of MPS patients from unaffected controls, indicating that GAG measurements are potentially valuable biomarkers for newborn screening for MPS.
