Study Description
Brief Summary:
A screening study to identify and characterize the disease status of patients with Gaucher Type 1 disease for potential inclusion in a subsequent phase 3 clinical study.

Condition or disease
Gaucher Disease, Type 1

Detailed Description:

The primary objective of this screening study is to identify and characterize the disease status of patients with Gaucher Type 1 disease for potential inclusion in a subsequent Phase 3 clinical study which will evaluate the efficacy and safety of Genz-112638.

This will be a multi-center, multi-national screening study to assess the disease status of patients with Gaucher Type 1 disease utilizing criteria to be eligible for enrollment in a subsequent phase 3 clinical study. The assessment performed in this study are standard of care for the evaluation of symptoms of Gaucher Type 1 disease. No study drug will be administered in this screening study.
