Abstract

To evaluate the outcome of current treatment for creatine transporter (CRTR) deficiency, we developed a clinical severity score and initiated an international treatment registry. An online questionnaire was completed by physicians following patients with CRTR deficiency on a treatment, including creatine and/or arginine, and/or glycine. Clinical severity score included 1) global developmental delay/intellectual disability; 2) seizures; 3) behavioural disorder. Phenotype scored 1-3 = mild; 4-6 = moderate; and 7-9 = severe. We applied the clinical severity score pre- and on-treatment. Seventeen patients, 14 males and 3 females, from 16 families were included. Four patients had severe, 6 patients had moderate, and 7 patients had a mild phenotype. The phenotype ranged from mild to severe in patients diagnosed at or before 2 years of age or older than 6 years of age. The phenotype ranged from mild to severe in patients with mildly elevated urine creatine to creatinine ratio. Fourteen patients were on the combined creatine, arginine and glycine therapy. On the combined treatment with creatine, arginine and glycine, none of the males showed either deterioration or improvements in their clinical severity score, whereas two females showed improvements in the clinical severity score. Creatine monotherapy resulted in deterioration of the clinical severity score in one male. There seems to be no correlation between phenotype and degree of elevation in urine creatine to creatinine ratio, genotype, or age at diagnosis. Combined creatine, arginine and glycine therapy might have stopped disease progression in males and improved phenotype in females.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 11 January 2019.
All research outputs
#11,723,223
of 13,205,256 outputs
Outputs from Metabolic Brain Disease
#474
of 600 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#234,305
of 269,224 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Metabolic Brain Disease
#18
of 27 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,205,256 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 600 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.4. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 269,224 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 27 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
