What is Niemann Pick Type C (NPC) Disease?
Niemann Pick Type C (NPC) disease is a rare neurodegenerative disease that primarily strikes children before or during adolescence. NPC is an inherited cholesterol metabolism disorder. Symptoms can include deterioration of memory and balance, lung and liver failure, delayed motor development, and seizures. The disease usually appears in early childhood, leading to neurological problems that there is no cure at this time. This disease is known as childhood Alzheimer’s. While there is not yet a specific treatment for NPC, supportive therapies are available. These include medications to control seizures, abnormal posturing of limbs, and tremors. Physical, speech and occupational therapy are also used to help with daily functioning.
