Recovery of PEX1-Gly843Asp peroxisome dysfunction by small-molecule compounds.  A pilot, open label trial assessing the safety and efficacy of betaine in patients with peroxisome biogenesis disorders, PEX1-Gly843Asp (G843D) genotype, concluded that betaine did not overall improve peroxisome functions in this 6 month trial at the dosage used (1-14-15).
