PMM2-CDG is the most prevalent congenital disorder of glycosylation (CDG) with only symptomatic therapy. Some CDG have been successfully treated with D-galactose. We performed an open-label pilot trial with D-galactose in 9 PMM2-CDG patients. Overall, there was no significant improvement but some milder patients did show positive clinical changes; also there was a trend toward improved glycosylation. Larger placebo-controlled studies are required to determine whether D-galactose could be used as supportive treatment in PMM2-CDG patients.Trial registration ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT02955264.
