  3. Male or female, aged 0 to <6 years of age.
  4. Confirmed diagnosis of Menkes disease based on the following clinical and/or biochemical and/or molecular characteristics:

    Clinical: Abnormal hair color and/or texture, and/or seizures, and/or hypotonia, and/or developmental delay; or Biochemical: Low serum copper levels (< 75 mcg/dL) and/or ceruloplasmin and/or abnormal plasma catecholamine levels; or Molecular: Mutation(s) in the ATP7A gene (deletion/duplication, nonsense, missense, or canonical or non-canonical splice junction mutations).

  5. For newly diagnosed Menkes disease patients, whose molecular ATP7A gene mutation confirmation is pending these patients should have serum copper levels < 75 mcg/dL.
  6. Ability to adhere to the prescribed subcutaneous Copper Histidinate injection regimen.
  7. Willingness to comply with all study visits and procedures.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Pre-existing liver (e.g., hepatitis, biliary atresia, cirrhosis) or kidney disease (e.g., serum creatinine >1.0 mg/dL).
  2. History of bleeding diatheses.
  3. Diagnosis of Wilson disease.
  4. Any disease or condition that, in the opinion of the Investigator, has a high probability of precluding the subject from completing the study or where the subject cannot or will not appropriately comply with study requirements.
