Study Helps Determine the Best Dosing Frequency of Triheptanoin for the Treatment of LCFAOD

A recent study by Wendy Putnam, PhD, from Ultragenyx developed a new model that could accurately estimate the elimination half-life of triheptanoin in patients with LCFAOD. This model can be used to calculate the best dosing frequency of triheptanoin marketed under the brand name Dojolvi® for the treatment of patients with LCFAOD
