Study to Determine Mutations in the Gaucher Gene in Patients With Idiopathic Parkinson's Disease for Phenotype-genotype Correlation

Parkinson's disease (also known as Parkinson's, Parkinson disease, or PD) is a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system that impairs motor skills, cognitive processes, and other functions. The most obvious symptoms are motor-related, including tremor, rigidity, slowness of movement, and postural instability. Among non-motor symptoms are autonomic dysfunction and ...

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

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 ...

Phase N/A

Thrombocytopathy in Gaucher Disease Patients

Objectives Delineating the cause of the thrombocytopathy in Gaucher disease patients: Identifying thrombocytopathy among a cohort of 70 Gaucher patients managed (treated and untreated) in our clinic using a panel of platelets function tests. Understanding the etiology for platelets dysfunction in Gaucher disease. Evaluating the impact of Imiglucerase treatment duration ...

Phase N/A

Home Therapy With VPRIV in Gaucher's Disease

The purpose of this study is to proof increasing patient satisfaction and preservation of quality of life in patients with Gaucher's Disease receiving their enzyme replacement therapy with VPRIV (Velaglucerase alfa)at their home setting compared to receiving the infusions at the clinic or at doctor's practice.

Phase N/A

Retrospective and Prospective Observational Study of MRI Changes in Bone and Visceral Lesions of Patients With Type 1 Gaucher Disease Treated With VPRIV (Velaglucerase Alfa)

All data entered will be used for analysis purposes and results will be submitted to inform regulatory agencies. Patient care and management is freely determined by the participating physician, in the framework of an observational study reflecting the daily medical practice. The clinical data, the results of routine clinical and ...

Phase N/A

Clinical and Pathophysiological Investigations Into Erdheim Chester Disease

Rare and potentially lethal, Erdheim-Chester Disease (ECD) is a histiocytic neoplasm about which little is known, and for which there remains a paucity of effective treatments. Histologically, it is categorized as a non-Langerhans cell histiocytosis, and most commonly occurs in men between the ages of 50 and 70, although cases ...

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

Role of Oxidative Stress and Inflammation in Type 1 Gaucher Disease (GD1)

The investigators will also examine if there is a change in these blood and brain chemicals in GD1 patients after receiving oral N-acetylcysteine ("NAC"), which is available both as a prescription medication and as a dietary-supplement product, that has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. Any changes the investigators may find in ...
