Gaucher disease (GD) and primary myelofibrosis (PMF) share similar clinical and laboratory features, such as cytopenia, hepatosplenomegaly, and marrow fibrosis, often resulting in a misdiagnosis.

Gaucher disease (GD) presents with a range of signs and symptoms. Physicians can fail to recognize the early stages of GD owing to a lack of disease awareness, which can lead to significant diagnostic...
Several studies support the evidence of increased incidence of hematological complications in Gaucher disease including monoclonal and polyclonal gammopathies and blood malignancies, especially multip...
Gaucher's disease is the most common lysosomal storage disease which occurs due to a deficiency of the enzyme glucocerebrosidase. This enzyme deficiency leads to accumulation of glucocerebrosidase in ...
Gaucher disease is a rare pan-ethnic disorder which occurs due to an increased accumulation of undegraded glycolipid glucocerebroside inside the cells' lysosomes. A beta-Glucosidase (GBA) gene defect ...
Gaucher disease (GD) results from a deficiency of glucocerebrosidase activity and the subsequent accumulation of the enzyme's metabolites, principally glucosylsphingosine and glucosylceramide. There a...
The purpose of this study is to learn more about Gaucher disease. The information we collect from medical histories and a blood sample from people with Gaucher disease may help us pinpoint...
The purpose of this research is to review data already collected and to collect new data from adults and children in England with Gaucher Disease to determine clinical factors which predic...
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 ...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the long-term safety of every other week dosing of Gene-Activated® human glucocerebrosidase (GA-GCB, velaglucerase alfa) intravenously in patients...
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...
An autosomal recessive disorder caused by a deficiency of acid beta-glucosidase (GLUCOSYLCERAMIDASE) leading to intralysosomal accumulation of glycosylceramide mainly in cells of the MONONUCLEAR PHAGOCYTE SYSTEM. The characteristic Gaucher cells, glycosphingolipid-filled HISTIOCYTES, displace normal cells in BONE MARROW and visceral organs causing skeletal deterioration, hepatosplenomegaly, and organ dysfunction. There are several subtypes based on the presence and severity of neurological involvement.
A glycosidase that hydrolyzes a glucosylceramide to yield free ceramide plus glucose. Deficiency of this enzyme leads to abnormally high concentrations of glucosylceramide in the brain in GAUCHER DISEASE. EC 126.96.36.199.
Cerebrosides which contain as their polar head group a glucose moiety bound in glycosidic linkage to the hydroxyl group of ceramides. Their accumulation in tissue, due to a defect in beta-glucosidase, is the cause of Gaucher's disease.
Therapeutic replacement or supplementation of defective or missing enzymes to alleviate the effects of the enzyme deficiency (e.g., GLUCOSYLCERAMIDASE replacement for GAUCHER DISEASE).
Animate or inanimate sources which normally harbor disease-causing organisms and thus serve as potential sources of disease outbreaks. Reservoirs are distinguished from vectors (DISEASE VECTORS) and carriers, which are agents of disease transmission rather than continuing sources of potential disease outbreaks.
