Study to Evaluate Blood Cell Lines From Patients With Gaucher Disease

2014-08-27 03:43:34 | BioPortfolio


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 certain things that are different between people who have Gaucher disease and people who do not have Gaucher disease. This information may be useful in the future to help find new treatments for Gaucher disease.


This study is designed to evaluate the ex vivo response to pharmacological chaperone therapy by testing blood samples from previously treated and untreated patients with Gaucher disease. The study will include patients with non-neuropathic Gaucher disease (type I) and neuropathic Gaucher disease (types II and/or III).

All subjects will participate in one study visit. Clinical information will be collected retrospectively from medical records. Information collected will include Gaucher disease diagnosis and history, medical history, family history, assessments of clinical severity, and genotype. A blood sample will be collected and various cells will be isolated for laboratory testing and research.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

The fraction of a blood sample, following CENTRIFUGATION, that is distinguished as a thin light-colored layer between the RED BLOOD CELLS, underneath it, and the PLASMA, above it. It is composed mostly of WHITE BLOOD CELLS and PLATELETS.

The number of RED BLOOD CELLS per unit volume in a sample of venous BLOOD.

The number of LEUKOCYTES and ERYTHROCYTES per unit volume in a sample of venous BLOOD. A complete blood count (CBC) also includes measurement of the HEMOGLOBIN; HEMATOCRIT; and ERYTHROCYTE INDICES.

The taking of a blood sample to determine its character as a whole, to identify levels of its component cells, chemicals, gases, or other constituents, to perform pathological examination, etc.
