Management and monitoring recommendations for the use of eliglustat in adults with type 1 Gaucher disease in Europe.
Purpose: In Gaucher disease, diminished activity of the lysosomal enzyme, acid β-glucosidase, leads to accumulation of glucosylceramides and related substrates, primarily in the spleen, liver, and bone marrow.
Treatment-naive Gaucher disease patients achieve therapeutic goals and normalization with velaglucerase alfa by 4years in phase 3 trials.
Gaucher disease is an inherited metabolic disease characterized by β-glucocerebrosidase deficiency and commonly treated with enzyme replacement therapy (ERT). The efficacy of ERT with velaglucerase alfa was assessed based on...
Eliglustat maintains long-term clinical stability in patients with Gaucher disease type 1 stabilized on enzyme therapy
In the phase 3 trial of eliglustat in patients with Gaucher disease type 1 already stabilized with enzyme therapy (ENCORE), at one year, eliglustat was non-inferior to imiglucerase enzyme therapy in maintaining stable platelet counts ...
Reductions in glucosylsphingosine (lyso-Gb1) in treatment-naive and previously treated patients receiving velaglucerase alfa for type 1 Gaucher disease: Data from phase 3 clinical trials.
This retrospective, exploratory analysis of data from phase 3 clinical trials of velaglucerase alfa in patients with type 1 GD evaluated the potential of lyso-Gb1 as a specific and sensitive biomarker for GD.
Cerezyme 400 U Powder for concentrate for solution for infusion
Cerezyme (imiglucerase) is indicated for use as long-term enzyme replacement therapy in patients with a confirmed diagnosis of non-neuronopathic (Type 1) or chronic neuronopathic (Type 3) Gaucher disease who exhibit clinically significant non-neurological manifestations of the disease. The non-neurological manifestations of Gaucher disease include one or more of the following conditions: • anaemia after exclusion of other causes, such as iron deficiency • thrombocytopenia • bone disease after exclusion of other causes such as Vitamin D deficiency • hepatomegaly or splenomegaly
How we manage the haematological aspects of major obstetric haemorrhage.
Major obstetric haemorrhage (MOH) remains an important medical challenge worldwide, contributing to significant maternal morbidity and mortality. Prompt and appropriate management is essential if we are to improve outcomes and...
Development of idursulfase therapy for mucopolysaccharidosis type II (Hunter syndrome): the past, the present and the future
Mucopolysaccharidosis type II (MPS II; Hunter syndrome; OMIM 309900) is a rare, multisystemic, progressive lysosomal storage disease caused by deficient activity of the iduronate-2-sulfatase (I2S) enzyme.
