Biotechnology company REGENXBIO Inc (Nasdaq:RGNX) reported on Thursday the receipt of the US Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) Rare Pediatric Disease Designation for RGX-181 for late-infantile neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis type 2 (CLN2) disease.

The respective disease-causative genes are as follows: CSTB , PRICKLE1 , MELF , NHLRC1 , KCTD7 , SCARB2 , PRICKLE2 , GOSR2 , KCNC1 , CERS1 , LMNB2 , and PRDM8 .[1],[2],[3],[4],[5],[6],[7],[8],[9],[10],[11],[12],[13] However, there are other neurogenetic diseases mainly characterized by myoclonus, epileptic seizures, and ataxia, such as myoclonus epilepsy and ragged red fibers, neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses, sialidosis, dentatorubral-pallidoluysian atrophy (DRPLA), and neuronopathic Gaucher disease, while a literature also regarded these diseases as PMEs.[1] In clinic, it is difficult to make an exact diagnosis among the various forms of PMEs due to homogeneous phenotypes.

A fatal lysosomal storage disease of the nervous system caused by autosomal-recessive mutations in the CLN1 gene, also known as infantile neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis (INCL), infantile Batten disease is an inherited fatal genetic disease that primarily affects the nervous system in newborns and progresses rapidly.
