No specific measures can prevent the gene mutations that cause MPS.
The large fragment deletion mutations were located in a hot spot for deletion mutations were located in a hot spot for deletion that has been reported.
As a consequence of co-evolution with their hosts, viruses have acquired host genes and genetic mutations that confer dominance over normal cell function.
The mechanism of other dominant mutations such as the one that causes myotonic dystrophy is not yet known.
Alien genetic material invading genomes also give rise to gene mutations, some of which may result in cancer.
