Niemann-Pick Type C (NPC) disease is a genetic, neurodegenerative disorder which causes progressive deterioration of the nervous system.
It usually affects children by interfering with their ability to metabolize cholesterol. Adult onset may also occur. Large amounts of cholesterol accumulate within the liver, spleen, and brain. This metabolic disorder leads to a series of neurological problems that are ultimately fatal…until a treatment is found.
