Molybdenum cofactor deficiency (MoCD) Type A: rare and devastating, so urgent diagnosis is crucial

Be ready to take
action immediately

The impact of MoCD Type A on newborns and their families can be profound and prolonged. Identifying MoCD Type A early can be the first step in making a difference in the lives of these newborns and their families.

No disease is too rare

MoCD is a rare neurological disorder in newborns that can lead to severe brain toxicity, developmental delays, and death.1 Symptoms such as intractable seizures often appear within hours to days following birth.1-3 Progression is rapid, so clinicians need to take action as soon as symptoms occur.4,5

Origin believes that a rare disorder like MoCD deserves focus and commitment just like more common life-threatening diseases. We are using our unique expertise and specialized resources to alert clinicians about MoCD Type A and give them the material to diagnose it as early as possible. Dedicated to bringing timely therapy to children born with MoCD Type A, we have developed a novel substrate replacement therapy that is the first of its kind approved by the FDA.6
