This is a multi-center trial to further extend the assessment of the safety and efficacy of taliglucerase alfa in adult subjects (≥18 years old) with Gaucher disease who have enrolled in Protocol PB-06-003. Subjects will continue to receive an intravenous (IV) infusion of taliglucerase alfa every two weeks. The duration of treatment will be a maximum of 21 months or until taliglucerase alfa is commercially available to the subject at the discretion of the Sponsor.
