  Purpose

Gaucher disease is a rare lysosomal storage disorder caused by the deficiency of the enzyme glucocerebrosidase (GCB). Due to the deficiency of functional GCB, glucocerebroside accumulates within macrophages leading to cellular engorgement, organomegaly, and organ system dysfunction. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of every other week dosing of GA-GCB (velaglucerase alfa) in patients with type 1 Gaucher disease who were previously treated with imiglucerase.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Patients Which Experienced at Least One Adverse Event [ Time Frame: Week 53 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

    Safety was assessed throughout the study by assessments including adverse events, concomitant medication use, and vital signs. Additional safety assessments, including 12-lead ECGs, physical examinations, clinical laboratory tests and determination of the presence of anti-velaglucerase alfa antibodies.

    Refer to Adverse event section for further details.



Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline to Week 53 in Hemoglobin Concentration [ Time Frame: Week 53 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    ITT patient population.

  • Percent Change From Baseline to Week 53 in Platelet Count [ Time Frame: Week 53 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    ITT patient population.

  • Percent Change From Baseline to Week 51 in Normalized Liver Volume [ Time Frame: Week 51 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Liver volume has been normalized for percentage (%) of body weight. Liver size relative to body weight= (Liver volume [cc]/Body weight [kg])*100

  • Percent Change From Baseline to Week 51 in Normalized Spleen Volume [ Time Frame: Week 51 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Spleen volume has been normalized for percentage (%) of body weight. Spleen size relative to body weight= (Spleen volume [cc]/Body weight [kg])*100

Detailed Description:

Type 1 Gaucher disease, the most common form, accounts for more than 90% of all cases and does not involve the CNS. Typical manifestations of type 1 Gaucher disease include hepatomegaly, splenomegaly, thrombocytopenia, bleeding tendencies, anemia, hypermetabolism, skeletal pathology, growth retardation, pulmonary disease, and decreased quality of life. Gene-Activated® human glucocerebrosidase (GA-GCB; velaglucerase alfa) is produced in a continuous human cell line using proprietary gene-activation technology and has an identical amino acid sequence to the naturally occurring human enzyme. GA-GCB contains terminal mannose residues that target the enzyme to the macrophages-the primary target cells in Gaucher disease. This study was designed to determine the safety of GA-GCB in men, women, and children with Type 1 Gaucher disease who were previously treated with imiglucerase. Each patient's duration of treatment will be 12 months.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

Includes:

  • The patient has a documented diagnosis of type 1 Gaucher disease, as determined by deficient glucocerebrosidase (GCB) activity relative to normal as measured in leukocytes or by genotype analysis and the patient/legal guardian is willing and able to provide written informed consent prior to initiating any study-related procedures
  • The patient has received consistent treatment with imiglucerase at a dose ≤ 60 U/kg and ≥ 15 U/kg every other week for a minimum of 30 consecutive months. Patients who are anti-imiglucerase antibody positive will be allowed to enter this study
  • The patient is at least 2 years of age
  • Female patients of child-bearing potential agree to use a medically acceptable method of contraception. Male patients must agree to use a medically acceptable method of birth control
  • Patient must be sufficiently co-operative to participate in the study as judged by the Investigator.

Exclusion Criteria:

Includes:

  • The patient has type 2 or 3 Gaucher disease or is suspected of having type 3 Gaucher disease
  • The patient has received treatment with any investigational drug or device within the 30 days prior to study entry; such use during the study is not permitted
  • Patient is HIV positive
  • Patient is hepatitis B/C positive
  • The patient presents with sustained iron, folic acid and/or vitamin B12 deficiency-related anemia during Screening
  • The patient, patient's parent(s), or patient's legal guardian(s) is/are unable to understand the nature, scope, and possible consequences of the study
  • The patient has a significant comorbidity that might affect study data or confound the study results
  • The patient is unable to comply with the protocol or is otherwise unlikely to complete the study, as determined by the Investigator
  • The patient has experienced an anaphylactic/anaphylactoid reaction during treatment with imiglucerase
  • The patient has received miglustat during the 6 months prior to study enrollment
  • The patient has an active, clinically significant spleen infarction
  • The patient has active, progressive bone necrosis
  • The patient is a pregnant and/or lactating female
