As there is huge potential in this industry many companies are vying to plunge into this untapped market by providing solutions for the treatment of batten disease. For instance, disease CLN2 Disease, therapeutic BMN 190, recombinant human tripeptidyl peptidase-1 (rhTPP1), a molecule of BioMarin is currently in phase III clinical trials.

There are four main types of batten diseases

  1. Infantile NCL: > 2 years of age
  2. Late infantile NCL: 2 – 4 years of age (the lifespan is 8 to 12 years)
