|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Urea Cycle Disorders, Inborn Inborn Errors of Metabolism Propionic Acidemia Methylmalonic Acidemia Carbamyl Phosphate Synthetase Deficiency||Drug: N-carbamylglutamate||Phase 2|
- To determine whether brief (3 day) treatment with N-carbamylglutamate can improve ureagenesis in adult healthy controls and patients with the following inborn errors of metabolism: N-acetylglutamate synthetase deficiency, propionic acidemia, methylmalonic acidemia, carbamylphosphate synthase deficiency, ornithine transcarbamylase deficiency and the syndrome of hyperammonemia, hypoglycemia and hyperinsulinemia (HHH Syndrome).
- To determine if such treatment improves other indicators of abnormal nitrogen metabolism such as elevated blood levels of glutamine, glycine and alanine.
