Uncovering the genetic roots of rare diseases and using those insights to develop new treatments is an ongoing process. Lysosomal storage diseases (LSDs) are a group of over 70 diseases that are characterized by lysosomal dysfunction, most of which are inherited as autosomal recessive traits. LSDs are characterized by an abnormal build-up of various materials in the body’s cells because of enzyme deficiencies and may affect different parts of the body.
