Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants Who Were Screened For The Follow-On Study With an Investigational Agent [ Time Frame: 1 month ]

    Standardized tests were used to identify patients who were receiving treatment with Elaprase, had cognitive impairment, and were suitable to participate in the follow-on clinical study (HGT-HIT-045). Assessments included:

    1. Cognition: The Differential Ability Scale, Second Edition (DAS-II) or the Bayley Scales of Infant Development, Third Edition (BSID-III);
    2. Adaptive Behavior: The Scale of Independent Behavior-Revised (SIB-R);
    3. Executive Function: The Behavior Rating Inventory of Executive Function-Preschool version (BRIEF-P) for children or the Behavior Rating Inventory of Executive Function (BRIEF) for children less than or ≥6 years of age, respectively;
    4. Motor: The Peabody Developmental Motor Scales-2 (PDMS-2) or the Bruininks-Oseretsky Test of Motor Proficiency, Second Edition (BOT-2) for children less than or ≥6 years of age, respectively.

  • Number of Participants With a Score of at Least 90 on The General Conceptual Ability (GCA) Sub-Scale of The Differential Ability Scale (DAS) [ Time Frame: 1 month ]
    The GCA sub-scale of the DAS, Second Edition (DAS-II) was used to obtain a general measure of cognitive ability.The maximum score is 120, with a higher score indicating greater cognitive ability. A score of 100 is considered an average score.

Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
No treatment
This is a screening study designed to evaluate the behavioral, physical, and neurodevelopmental status in pediatric patients with Hunter syndrome who have early signs and symptoms of CNS involvement and who are currently receiving treatment with Elaprase.
Behavioral: Neurobehavioral testing
If the patient is found to be eligible after completion of a telephone interview, he will undergo further testing to assess his neurodevelopmental status using a standardized battery of neurobehavioral testing.
Other: Visual and auditory assessments
If the patient is found to be eligible after completion of a telephone interview, he will undergo further testing to evaluate his visual and auditory function.
