Hi all,


A big ask, but has anyone got any information on 'triheptanoin', including where this could potentially be obtained from please.

We have a VLCADD patient where it is being thought about.

I am doing my own literature serach and MI enquiry but would be good if anyone has info. to share.

Hi Will;

I looked into this a few years ago now, and you can't get hold of it anymore.

Hi Will,

I looked into this as well as a couple of years ago.  I also concluded that it is not commertially available. A US company called Ultragenynx have currently got it in clinical development and have started trials in a couple of conditions.  

Kind regards
