Be ready to take

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 an ultra-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 tools to diagnose it as early as possible. Dedicated to bringing timely therapy to children born with MoCD Type A, we are developing a novel substrate replacement therapy that is currently being studied in clinical trials.
