Recent observations in two patients, one with AGAT deficiency (AGAT-D) and one with GAMT deficiency (GAMT-D), both diagnosed already at birth, provide first evidence for important therapeutic effects of pre-symptomatic treatment with creatine (Cr) supplementation in AGAT-D and Cr supplementation plus guanidinoacetate lowering strategies in GAMT-D. Although long-term data are lacking, the results suggest that complete prevention of neurological sequelae in early treated patients could be feasible (Battini et al., 2006; Schulze et al., 2006).
