NOVATO, Calif., Sept. 16, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ultragenyx Pharmaceutical Inc., a biotechnology company, announced the release of positive data from a retrospective protocol-driven medical record review of triheptanoin treatment of patients with long-chain fatty acid oxidation disorders (LC-FAOD). LC-FAOD patients have severe morbidity and mortality with frequent complications and hospitalizations. The study evaluated the impact of triheptanoin treatment on the rate and extent of hospitalizations in 20 of 24 patients who have been treated with triheptanoin for up to 13 years as part of a compassionate use protocol and consented to be part of the retrospective study. The study compared the incident rate for the major medical events before and after triheptanoin treatment, including the total number of hospitalizations and hospital days per year due to all causes, muscle rupture (rhabdomyolysis), hypoglycemia, or cardiomyopathy.
