Gaucher disease is a most common genetic metabolic disease characterized by low platelet number, liver and spleen enlargement and various forms of bone diseases including low bone mineral density leading to brittle bones. Various treatment options are now available for this disease.
The purpose of this research study is to determine the prevalence of Gaucher disease in patients with low bone mineral density as observed by DEXA scan, which is a form of X-Ray of the bone.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Gaucher Disease||Other: Gaucher disease DNA mutation analysis|
|Study Type :||Observational|
|Estimated Enrollment :||200 participants|
|Official Title:||Prevalence of Gaucher Among Patients With Osteopenia/Osteoporosis|
|Study Start Date :||April 2016|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date :||September 2019|
|Estimated Study Completion Date :||September 2019|
Patients receiving DEXA Scan
Gaucher patients referred for dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA scan), who were found to have T-score <-1.0.
Other: Gaucher disease DNA mutation analysis
- Population prevalence of Gaucher disease among patients with low bone mineral density [ Time Frame: 2 Years ]
