The Maple Syrup Urine Disease Family Support Group (MSUD) is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing opportunities for support to affected individuals and their families, encouraging research, and disseminating educational materials. Maple syrup urine disease is a rare, inherited metabolic disorder that, if left untreated, can result in mental retardation, physical disabilities, and life-threatening complications. In infants with MSUD, three branched chain amino acids (leucine, isoleucine, and valine) abnormally accumulate in the blood causing harmful effects that interfere with brain functions. Established in 1982, MSUD publishes a periodic newsletter entitled, "Maple Syrup Urine Disease Newsletter." The support group produces and distributes educational materials such as brochures on maple syrup urine disease and organizes an international education conference for families and professionals held every two years.
