Nervous System Degeneration in Glycosphingolipid Storage Disorders

The GM1 and GM2 gangliosidoses are lysosomal storage disorders that primarily affect the brain and are uniformly fatal. No effective therapy for patients with these diseases has yet been demonstrated. Historically, since these disorders are fatal very little natural history information or disease characterization using modern medical techniques has been ...

Phase N/A

International Collaborative Gaucher Group (ICGG) Gaucher Registry

The ICGG Gaucher Registry is an ongoing, international multi-center, strictly observational program that tracks the routine clinical outcomes for patients with Gaucher disease, irrespective of treatment status. No experimental intervention is involved; patients in the Registry undergo clinical assessments and receive care as determined by the patient's treating physician. The ...

Phase N/A

Investigating Lysosomal Storage Diseases in Minority Groups

Although lysosomal storage disorders, such as Fabry disease, Gaucher disease, and Pompe disease, represent serious challenges in the healthcare system, no study has yet investigated the prevalence of these diseases in the US. Frequently, patients show progressive worsening of symptoms for several years before they get diagnosed. Since many of ...

Phase N/A

Oxidative Stress-Related Biomarkers in Gaucher Disease: A Preliminary Study

We will determine oxidative stress and/or inflammation related biomarkers in whole blood and/or plasma in adult subjects with Gaucher disease. Fifteen milliliter blood sample will be collected during three independent visits over a period of approximately 3 months. These samples will be processed to separate plasma from red blood cells ...

Phase N/A

Gaucherite - A Study to Stratify Gaucher Disease

Gaucher disease is part of a rare group of genetic metabolic diseases which are caused by an inherited deficiency of the enzyme glucocerebrosidase. The most common form, Type 1 affects 1 in 40,000 to 60,000 individuals in the general population. In Type 1 symptoms may appear at any time from ...

Phase N/A

A Long-term Follow-up Study of Gaucher Disease

The study aims (aims a-c) will be accomplished by the systematic monitoring of health records. Health information will be extracted from medical records for patients followed at Duke. Medical records will be requested from treating physicians outside of Duke. The PI, (Dr. Kishnani) a recognized expert in Gaucher disease, is ...

Phase N/A

LYSO-PROVE - Determine the Prognostic Value of Lyso-Gb1 for Monitoring the Progress of Gaucher Disease

Gaucher disease is an autosomal recessive inherited lysosomal storage disorder. The disease is caused by the hereditary deficiency of the glucocerebrosidase, a lysosomal enzyme that breaks down glucocerebroside into glucose and ceramide. Gaucher disease is the most common sphingolipidosis and it is among the most frequent inherited diseases among the ...

Phase N/A

Genzyme Osteopenia/Osteoporosis Study

Gaucher disease is a potential secondary cause of low bone mineral density and it is prevalent among patients with low BMD. This cross sectional design study will measure point prevalence of Gaucher disease in patients with low bone mineral density (BMD).

Phase N/A

Gaucher Disease Outcome Survey (GOS)

The Gaucher Outcomes Survey (GOS) is an ongoing observational, international, multi-center, long-term Registry of Patients with Gaucher Disease irrespective of their treatment status or type of treatment received. No experimental intervention is involved. Patients undergo clinical assessments and receive care as determined by the patients' treating physician. The objectives of ...

Phase N/A

Biomarker for Gaucher Disease

The unmetabolised Glucocerebrosides are stored throughout the whole reticulo-endothelial system. Accumulation of Glycolipid-enriched Macrophages establishes a pathoanatomical phenomenon, the so-called Gaucher cells, which can be verified by light microscopy. Activation markers of the Macrophages, like the enzyme Chitotriosidase or CCL18, are parameters which follow the course of Gaucher dis-ease. Gaucher ...
