About MLII (I-Cell Disease)

WHAT IS I-CELL?

I-Cell disease is a rare genetic disease with no current cure. It occurs due to a lack of several enzymes that leads to an accumulation of fatty substances and carbohydrates within the tissues of the body. Children with I-cell disease typically have difficulty in walking, frequent life-threatening respiratory infections, overgrowth of gum tissue, joint stiffness and abnormalities of the heart.

QUICK FACTS

  • I-Cell disease affects approximately 2 in 1 million children worldwide.

  • Unfortunately, children with I-cell disease die in childhood, typically before the age of 10. 

  • Most affected children pass away due to respiratory failure.

  • There is no current cure for I-Cell, but the Yash Gandhi Foundation is the only foundation globally that solely dedicates money to I-Cell research.
