  Purpose

Gaucher disease is a genetic disease that results in a deficiency of an enzyme acid β-glucosidase, also known as glucocerebrosidase. This enzyme is needed to digest a substrate (lipid) called glucosylceramide and, to a lesser degree, glucosylsphingosine. In patients with Gaucher disease, the liver, spleen, bone marrow and brain show increases in lipid concentration, specifically in cells derived from the monocyte/macrophage system.

Eliglustat tartrate (Genz-112638) is an oral drug that may regulate the Gaucher disease process by decreasing the synthesis of glucosylceramide. The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy, safety and pharmacokinetics (PK) of eliglustat tartrate (Genz-112638), administered as an oral dose of either 50mg twice daily (BID) or 100mg BID, to men and women with Gaucher disease Type 1 for 52 weeks.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Proportion of patients demonstrating a meaningful clinical response [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 52 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    A meaningful clinical response is defined as an improvement in at least 2 of the 3 main efficacy parameters what were abnormal at study entry (hemoglobin, platelets, and/or spleen volume). Within each patient, only those parameters that were abnormal at Baseline will be used in the evaluation of meaningful clinical response. Responses are defined as:

    • an increase in hemoglobin of ≥ 0.5 g/dL
    • an increase in platelets of ≥ 15%
    • reduction of ≥ 15% in total spleen volume

  • Incidence of reported Adverse Events (AEs) and Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) [ Time Frame: Up to Week 52 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Pharmacokinetics as measured by terminal elimination rate constant (λ), [ Time Frame: Up to Week 52 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Pharmacokinetics as measured by minimum concentration (Cmin) [ Time Frame: Up to Week 52 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Pharmacokinetics as measured by maximum concentration (Cmax) [ Time Frame: Up to Week 52 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Pharmacokinetics as measured by time to maximum observed concentration (tmax) [ Time Frame: Up to Week 52 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Pharmacokinetics as measured by area under the concentration time curve (AUC) [ Time Frame: Up to Week 52 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Pharmacokinetics as measured by volume of distribution during the terminal elimination phase (Vz/F) [ Time Frame: Up to Week 52 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Pharmacokinetics as measured by apparent oral clearance (CL/F) [ Time Frame: Up to Week 52 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Pharmacokinetics as measured by half-life (t1/2) [ Time Frame: Up to Week 52 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in liver volume compared to baseline [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 52 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change from baseline in biomarkers (Angiotensin Converting Enzyme [ACE], Tartrate-Resistant Acid Phosphatase [TRAP], CCL18, chitotriosidase) [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 52 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Changes in patient-reported Quality of Life [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 52 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Changes in mobility, bone pain, bone crisis [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 52 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Changes in radiographic measures of bone disease [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 52 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Percent change in spleen volume [ Time Frame: Baseline to study completion ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Study completion refers to (i.e., patient withdrawal, the study is terminated, Genz-112638 becomes commercially available, or where applicable, specific regulatory requirements have been met)

  • Percent change in liver volume [ Time Frame: Baseline to study completion ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Study completion refers to (i.e., patient withdrawal, the study is terminated, Genz-112638 becomes commercially available, or where applicable, specific regulatory requirements have been met)

  • Absolute changes in hemoglobin [ Time Frame: Baseline to study completion ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Study completion refers to (i.e., patient withdrawal, the study is terminated, Genz-112638 becomes commercially available, or where applicable, specific regulatory requirements have been met)

Detailed Description:

This study consists of several phases: Screening (-28 to -1 days), dose adjustment/treatment (Day 1 [treatment baseline] to Day 30), initial steady-state treatment (post-Day 30 through Week 52 post-baseline), a treatment interruption period (Week 52 through approximately Week 54), long-term steady-state treatment (approximately Week 54 through study completion), and safety follow-up (30 to 37 days after a patient withdraws from or completes the study).
