Most PKU patients in the Palynziq preliminaries were on an unhindered eating regimen preceding and amid the preliminaries. The main preliminary was a randomized, open-mark preliminary in patients treated with expanding measurements of Palynziq controlled as a subcutaneous infusion up to an objective dosage of either 20 mg once day by day or 40 mg once day by day.
