Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Participants With Adverse Events (AEs) [ Time Frame: From start of the study drug administration up to end of study (EOS) (Week 53) ]
    An adverse event (AE) is defined as any untoward medical occurrence in a clinical investigation participant administered a drug; it does not necessarily have to have a causal relationship with this treatment. An AE can therefore be any unfavorable and unintended sign (example, a clinically significant abnormal laboratory value), symptom, or disease temporally associated with the use of a drug whether or not it is considered related to the drug. A serious adverse event (SAE) is defined as any untoward medical occurrence that at any dose results in: death; is life-threatening: requires inpatient hospitalization or results in prolongation of existing hospitalization; persistent or significant disability/incapacity; leads to a congenital anomaly/birth defect or is an important medical event. AEs include SAEs, treatment emergent AEs, treatment emergent SAEs, discontinuation due to AEs, and death.

  2. Number of Participants With Adverse Drug Reactions (ADRs) [ Time Frame: From start of the study drug administration up to EOS (Week 53) ]
    An ADR is defined as a response to a drug which is noxious and unintended, and which occurs at doses normally used in humans for prophylaxis, diagnosis, or therapy of disease, or for the modification of physiological function.

  3. Number of Participants With Infusion-related Reactions (IRRs)) [ Time Frame: From start of the study drug administration up to EOS (Week 53) ]
    An IRR is defined as an AE that has been assessed as at least possibly related to treatment with Elaprase and occurs during an infusion or up to 24 hours post-infusion.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change From Baseline in Percentage Forced Vital Capacity (%FVC) at Week 27 and 53 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Weeks 27 and 53 ]
    FVC is the amount of air that can be forcibly exhaled from your lungs after taking the deepest breath possible, as measured by spirometry. FVC is a measure of respiratory function.

  2. Change From Baseline in 6 Minute Walk Test (6MWT) at Week 27 and 53 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Weeks 27 and 53 ]
    6MWT is a measure of physical functional capacity which is determined on a walking course.

  3. Change From Baseline in Cardiac Left Ventricular Mass Index (LVMI) at Week 27 and 53 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Weeks 27 and 53 ]
    Cardiac LVMI will be measured by 2-dimensional (2D) echocardiography. Cardiac LVMI is the left ventricular mass (LVM, in grams [g]) indexed to body surface area (BSA), in square meter (m^2). Cardiac LVMI (in gram per square meter [g/m^2])=LVM divided by BSA.

  4. Change From Baseline in Ejection Fraction at Week 27 and 53 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Weeks 27 and 53 ]
    The Ejection Fraction is measured by 2D echocardiography and considered a sufficiently sensitive measure to evaluate any changes in cardiac function.

  5. Change From Baseline in Liver Volume at Week 27 and 53 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Weeks 27 and 53 ]
    Liver volume will be determined by Ultrasonography (USG). Hepatomegaly is defined as a liver volume (Liter [L]) greater than (>) 3.5% of body weight (kilogram [kg]) in participants aged 5-12 years, 2.2% of body weight in participants aged 13-17 years, and >2.6% in participants more than 18 years old (30).

  6. Change From Baseline in Spleen Volume at Week 27 and 53 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Weeks 27 and 53 ]
    Spleen volume will be determined by USG. Splenomegaly is defined as having a splenic volume greater than the 95th percentile of the normal distribution in children.

  7. Change From Baseline in Normalized Urine Glycosaminoglycan (uGAG) Levels at Week 14, 27, 40, and 53 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Weeks 14, 27, 40, and 53 ]
    Normalized uGAG will be analyzed using urine testing. The uGAG levels will be normalized to urine creatinine and will be reported as microgram GAG per milligram creatinine (mcg GAG/mg creatinine).

  8. Change From Baseline in Global Joint Range of Motion (JROM) Score at Week 27 and 53 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Weeks 27 and 53 ]
    Passive joint mobility is defined as the range of motion of the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee, and ankle joints, as assessed by one expert physician using universal goniometry method. Global JROM (% of normal range of motion) is the average of 11 ratios multiplied by 100. Ratios are left/right means of passive range of motion in shoulder (flexion/extension, abduction, internal/external rotation), elbow (flexion/extension), wrist (flexion/extension), index finger (flexion/extension [combined metacarpophalangeal joint, proximal interphalangeal joint, distal interphalangeal joint motion]), hip (flexion/extension, abduction, internal/external rotation), knee (flexion/extension), and ankle (dorsiflexion) divided by the normal range (American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons and American Medical Association). It ranges from 0-100 where, 0- No movement and 100- Normal.

  9. Change From Baseline in Anthropometric Parameter (Height) [ Time Frame: Baseline, Weeks 27 and 53 ]
    Change from baseline in height (centimeters) will be assessed in participants less than (<) 18 years at Weeks 27 and 53.

  10. Change From Baseline in Anthropometric Parameter (Weight) at Weeks 27 and 53 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Weeks 27 and 53 ]
    Change from baseline in weight (kilograms) will be assessed in all participants at Weeks 27 and 53.

  11. Change From Baseline in the Health-related Quality of Life (HRQoL) Based on Hunter Syndrome-Functional Outcomes for Clinical Understanding Scale (HS-FOCUS) [ Time Frame: Baseline, Weeks 27 and 53 ]
    HS-FOCUS was developed as disease-specific measure of the impact of Hunter syndrome on HRQL. The HS-FOCUS is designed to gather information on the participant's daily life and wellbeing, satisfaction with treatment, and hospitalizations, as well as on how Hunter syndrome impacts participant's general quality of life. HS-FOCUS includes 2 validated components: a parent version and a participant self-reported version for those over age 12 years. The HS-FOCUS (shortened version) questionnaire has 5 function domains (walking/standing, grip/reach, school/work, activities, and breathing). Items are scored using a response scale from 0 to 3, with 0 signifying an ability to complete the activity-related functions 'without any difficulty' and 3 score denoting highest disability.

  12. Change From Baseline in the HRQoL Based on Childhood Health Assessment Questionnaire (CHAQ) [ Time Frame: Baseline, Weeks 27 and 53 ]
    The CHAQ was initially developed for assessing juvenile idiopathic arthritis, from the perspective of the parent or participant, and has been previously applied to other chronic disabling conditions such as Hunter syndrome. It is a 30-item instrument that measures functional capacity and independence in activities of daily life across eight domains: dressing and grooming, arising, eating, walking, reach, grip, hygiene, and activities. For each domain, there is a 4-level difficulty scale that is scored from 0 to 3, with 0 corresponding to 'without any difficulty' and 3 to 'unable to do'.
