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).
