Lysosomal Storage Disorders (LSDs) are very rare genetic disorders, the treatment of which involves very high cost and lifelong Enzyme Replacement Therapy costing in the range of INR 50 lakhs to INR 2 crores annually per patient. Due to the challenges in India in accessing this prohibitively expensive treatment in the absence of government and insurance support, there is an urgent need to focus on the prevention of these disorders to reduce the future affected births and burden of LSDs.
In this webinar, Dr. Mamta Muranjan, a leading geneticist from KEM Hospital, Mumbai, gives an overview of what LSDs are, followed by a panel discussion with Dr. Hrishikesh Pai, President of the Federation of Obstetric and Gynecological Societies of India (FOGSI) to understand the role of obstetricians and gynecologists in the prevention of these rare genetic disorders.
