Presented by Dr. Barbara Burton of Children's Memorial Hospital, Chicago Saturday, October 27 at 8:30am
-- Double-blind, placebo-controlled Phase 3 study in 90 subjects four to
twelve years of age with a diagnosis of PKU with hyperphenylalaninemia
and controlled on a Phe-restricted diet for more than six months.

while maintaining adequate blood Phe control.
-- Mean daily Phe intake (dietary + supplement) increased from 16.8 to
43.8mg/kg/day with sapropterin (p<0.001) and from 16.3 to 23.5mg/kg/day
with placebo (p=0.079).
