Background: Anderson-Fabry disease is a multisystem X linked disorder of lipid metabolism frequently associated with cardiac symptoms, including left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy gradually impairing cardiac function. Evidence showing that enzyme-replacement therapy (ERT) can be effective in reducing LV hypertrophy and improving myocardial function in the long term is limited. Objective: This study aimed to assess the long-term effects of ERT with recombinant α-galactosidase A (agalsidase beta, Fabrazyme) on LV function and myocardial signal intensity in 11 patients with Anderson-Fabry disease. Patients: Eleven patients (eight males, three females) with varying stages of genetically confirmed Anderson-Fabry disease were examined by means of physical examination and magnetic resonance imaging before ERT with agalsidase beta at 1 mg/kg every other week (study 1) and after a mean treatment duration of 45 months (study 2). Results: At 45 months of treatment, LV mass and LV wall thickness had ...

N2 - Chronic kidney disease is a major complication of Fabry disease. Podocytes accumulate globotriaosylceramide inclusions more than other kidney cell types in Fabry patients. Podocyte injury occurs early in age, and is progressive. Since injured podocytes detach into the urine (podocyturia), we hypothesized that podocyturia would increase in Fabry patients and correlate with clinical severity of Fabry nephropathy. Urine specimens from 39 Fabry patients and 24 healthy subjects were evaluated for podocyturia. Most of the Fabry patients and many healthy subjects had podocyturia. The number of podocytes per gram of urine creatinine ...
Journal: EJNMMI - European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging ArticleTitle: Cardiac sympathetic neuronal damage precedes myocardial fibrosis in patients with Anderson-Fabry disease
Fabry disease is an inherited disorder. It follows an X-linked pattern of inheritance because the gene that makes alpha-Gal A is on the X chromosome. A chromosome is a package of genetic material, and humans have 23 pairs of chromosomes, which they inherit from their parents. The X-chromosome is one of the two chromosomes (X and Y) that determine an individuals sex. Males have one Y chromosome and one X-chromosome; for males with Fabry disease, the X-chromosome carries the defective a-Gal A gene. Females have two X chromosomes; for females with Fabry disease, one X-chromosome carries the defective a-Gal A gene and the other carries a normal, healthy a-Gal A gene. A male with Fabry disease will pass his X-chromosome with the defective alpha-Gal A gene onto each of his daughters, but to none of his sons. A female with Fabry disease has a 50% chance of passing the X-chromosome with the defective alpha-Gal A gene onto each of her children, both sons and daughters.. For more information, see: ...
Release: Dec. 4, 2002. Childrens Hospital of Iowa to test new treatment for Fabry disease. The Childrens Hospital of Iowa at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics will be one of 20 medical centers to take part in a major international study of a new treatment for Fabry disease, a rare genetic disorder that affects an estimated 1 in 40,000 males worldwide. The goal of the trial is to determine the safety and efficacy of recombinant human alpha-galactosidase A (Fabrazyme) on the progression of renal disease and significant clinical events in patients with Fabry disease. This will be a Phase IV multi-center, multinational, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial. Because Fabry disease is a rare genetic disorder, centers will need to work aggressively to identify patients to take part in this study. We will be working with families, Fabry patient organizations and medical centers throughout our area to identify patients for this very important clinical trial. We are very pleased to ...

BACKGROUND: Anderson-Fabry disease (AFD) is an X-linked lysosomal storage disorder caused by deficiency of alpha-galactosidase A. Central nervous system (CNS) manifestations consist mainly of cerebrovascular events. Brain MRI results are often abnormal. Purpose: The aim of the study was to describe CNS involvement in a group of Italian patients with AFD. METHODS: Clinical and brain MRI data of 43 patients with AFD (25 men, 41.94+/-10.83 years old and 18 women, 52.48+/-17.50 years old) were analysed retrospectively. 17 male patients and 7 female patients were under treatment with enzyme replacement therapy (ERT). RESULTS: All 43 patients had signs or symptoms of AFD. 16 men (64%) and 13 women (72%) demonstrated CNS involvement, although with varying severity. Overall, 6 men and 5 women had suffered from cerebrovascular accidents with an age at onset of 33.64+/-13.65 years and 53.68+/-11.71 years, respectively. Brain MR images were abnormal in 16/25 men and in 13/16 women. During CNS monitoring, ...
People with Fabry Disease have an alteration in their genetic material (DNA) which causes a deficiency of the alpha-galactosidase A enzyme. Fabrazyme (agalsidase beta) is a drug that helps to break down and removes certain types of fatty substances called glycolipids. These glycolipids are normally present within the body in most cells. In Fabry disease, glycolipids build up in various tissues such as the liver, kidney, skin, and blood vessels because a-galactosidase A is not present, or is present in small quantities. The build up of glycolipid (globatriaosylceramide or GL-3) levels in these tissues in particular is thought to cause the clinical symptoms that are common to Fabry disease. This study analyzed the safety and efficacy of Fabrazyme in the treatment of patients with Fabry disease that previously participated in the AGAL-008-00 (NCT0074984) study ...
Fabry disease is an X-linked lysosomal storage disorder that leads to excessive deposition of globotriaosylceramide ( GL-3) throughout the body. Skin, eye, kidney, heart, brain, and peripheral nervous system are highly vulnerable. Fabry disease is often difficult to diagnose since signs and symptoms are often nonspecific.. Symptoms. Many symptoms associated with Fabry disease are nonspecific making it a difficult disease to diagnosis. Not all symptoms may appear nor develop in any particular order. However, younger patients may have some or all of the following:. ...
Enzyme replacement therapy can reduce storage, ease pain, and preserve organ function in some individuals with Fabry disease. Drugs are often prescribed to treat pain that accompanies Fabry disease but does not treat the disorder. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved migalastat (Galafold) as an oral medication for adults with Fabry disease who have a certain genetic mutation. Anti-platelet medications can help prevent strokes and medications that lower blood pressure can slow the decline of kidney function in people with Fabry disease. ...
This is a global prospective observational study of women with Fabry disease and their infants during pregnancy and/or breastfeeding. The study will evaluate outcomes of pregnancy and/or breastfeeding in women and infants exposed to migalastat. All pregnant women with Fabry disease are eligible to enroll, an unexposed cohort potentially can be used for comparisons.. Cases will be reported voluntarily to the Pregnancy Coordinating Center (PCC) from any country by Healthcare Providers (HCPs), by patients and secondary contacts. The PCC will follow patients throughout their pregnancies and/or breastfeeding and infant through 1 year of age.. There will be 2 cohorts enrolled in the study. Cohort 1 will be pregnant and/or breastfeeding patients who have Fabry Disease, and have been exposed to at least 1 dose of migalastat during pregnancy and/or breastfeeding. Cohort 2 will be pregnant and/or breastfeeding patients who have Fabry Disease, who were not exposed to migalastat during pregnancy and/or ...

Background: Fabry disease. an X-linked deficiency of α-galactosidase A coded by the GLA gene, leads to intracellular globotriaosylceramide (GL-3) accumulation. Although less common than in males, chronic kidney disease, occurs in ~15% of females. Recent studies highlight the importance of podocyte injury in Fabry nephropathy development and progression. We hypothesized that the greater the % of podocytes with active wild-type GLA gene (due to X-inactivation of the mutant copy) the less is the overall podocyte injury. Methods: Kidney biopsies from 12 treatment-naive females with Fabry disease, ages 15 (8-63), median [range], years were studied by electron microscopy and compared with 4 treatment-naive male patients.. Results: In females, 51 (13-100)% of podocytes (PC) per glomerulus had no GL-3 inclusions, this consistent with a non-Fabry podocyte phenotype (NFPC). In PC with GL-3 inclusions [Fabry podocyte phenotype (FPC)], GL-3 volume density per podocyte was virtually identical in females and ...

Note the presence of a hyperechogenic region in the posterior wall (mid-wall level, arrow), corresponding to localized fibrosis. C. Right ventricular free wall hypertrophy from subcostal view.. In most cases of FD, the LVH is concentric and non-obstructive; however, an asymmetrical hypertrophy with septal thickening and posterior wall fibrotic thinning may present in advanced cases. There have also been rare case reports of patients with obstructive forms of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. The LVH is progressive in nature, and is rarely severe in children or adolescents. Of note, the echocardiographically derived cardiac mass is proportional to the electrocardiographic LVH low-voltage on the ECG, presenting an argument against Fabry disease in these patients.. Right ventricular (RV) hypertrophy is also common [9] (around 70% of Fabry patients display it) and may progress to RV dilation (Figure 1C). ...

Background- Enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) has been shown to enhance microvascular endothelial globotriaosylceramide clearance in the hearts of patients with Fabry disease. Whether these results can be translated into an improvement of myocardial function has yet to be demonstrated.. Methods and Results- Sixteen patients with Fabry disease who were treated in an open-label study with 1.0 mg/kg body weight of recombinant α-Gal A (agalsidase β, Fabrazyme) were followed up for 12 months. Myocardial function was quantified by ultrasonic strain rate imaging to assess radial and longitudinal myocardial deformation. End-diastolic thickness of the left ventricular posterior wall and myocardial mass (assessed by magnetic resonance imaging, n=10) was measured at baseline and after 12 months of ERT. Data were compared with 16 age-matched healthy controls. At baseline, both peak systolic strain rate and systolic strain were significantly reduced in the radial and longitudinal direction in patients ...
Introduction. Fabry disease is a rare genetic lysosomal storage disorder of glycosphingolipids with X-linked transmission and an estimated incidence of 1:40,000-1:117,000 live male births.1 Partial or complete deficiency of the enzyme alpha-galactosidase A (a-Gal A) results in altered metabolism and progressive lysosomal accumulation of the substrate (mostly globotriaosylceramide, Gb3).2 The responsible gene is located on the long arm of the chromosome X (Xq22). More than 600 mutations have been identified with variable phenotypical expression.3. Clinically we distinguish the classical form and two variants, cardiac and renal. In the classical form clinical manifestations appear during childhood or early adolescence including acroparesthesias, angiokeratomas and corneal opacities.4 Progressive accumulation of Gb3 in the kidneys, heart and central nervous system lead to renal failure, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and cerebral vascular accidents limiting life expectancy. The cardiac variant of the ...
Fabry disease is a rare enzyme deficiency known as a lysosomal storage disease. Wikipedia The enzyme involved, alpha galactosidase A, is coded by the GLA gene. OMIM Although Fabry disease has been considered an X-linked recessive condition, female carriers of a single mutated GLA gene may have significant symptoms. Enzyme replacement therapy is helpful, although it is currently extremely expensive, and production problems have led to shortages of the drug. [1] ...
Cardiac microvascular function abnormalities in Fabry patients have been demonstrated by measurements of myocardial blood flow and coronary flow reserve, an index of microvascular function.14 In addition, a survey of female Fabry patients revealed that cardiac ischemia could be confirmed by ECG and serological markers in the absence of coronary artery stenosis, suggesting that the ischemia in these patients was of microvascular origin.11 However, widespread coronary artery disease also has been documented in Fabry patients15 and noted at autopsy in a male patient who died of a massive myocardial infarction.16 In the present study, we characterized the baseline pathology of GL-3 accumulation in cardiac biopsies and demonstrated its successful clearance from the microvasculature after enzyme replacement therapy.. It has long been established that GL-3 is transported in low- and high-density lipoprotein particles17-19 and that vascular cells accumulate GL-3 from the circulation through the ...

Response:. We thank Drs Lidove, Joly, and Touzé1 for their interest in our publications with regard to screening for Fabry disease in stroke patients, and for their analysis of currently available epidemiological data.2,-,6. Several issues, however, preclude drawing solid conclusions from their meta-analysis. First, relevant heterogeneity in the study designs exists, especially with regard to the stroke subtype, the stroke etiology, and the demographic data, and even the screening methodology should be taken into account.2,4,5 Second, limiting screening for Fabry disease to cryptogenic stroke patients may result in selection bias because the condition is known to be associated with cerebral microangiopathy and macroangiopathy,7,8 cardioembolic phenomena,9 and coagulopathy.10 Finally, exclusion of patients with the D313Y mutation is debatable because this mutation has been identified in classically affected males.11. Obviously, additional data are mandatory to substantiate decision-making about ...

Patients affected by a rare and potentially fatal inherited metabolic disorder called Fabry disease are now benefiting from a new treatment that researchers at Childrens Hospital of Iowa helped create.. Fabry disease affects approximately 5,000 people worldwide. The average lifespan of people diagnosed with the disorder is 50 years. The disease is caused by a deficiency of an enzyme called alpha-galactosidase A. Patients affected by the condition can develop kidney failure, strokes, heart disease and disabling pain. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently approved a medication called Fabrazyme, produced by Genzyme General, for the treatment of Fabry disease. The therapy replaces the missing enzyme in order to help correct the disorder. The treatment took 30 years of research to develop.. Thomas Loew, M.D., associate professor (clinical) at Childrens Hospital of Iowa in University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, helped conduct the research that led to the FDAs approval of ...
The European Medicines Agency (EMA) has recommended granting a marketing authorisation in the European Union (EU) for migalastat (Galafold) for the treatment of Fabry disease, a rare genetic disorder. Patients with Fabry disease do not have enough of an enzyme called alpha-galactosidase A.
Fabry disease is an X-linked recessive disorder that leads to the accumulation of a lipid called globotriaosylceramide in the cells of the body. The condition is rare and affects around 1 in 50,000 males. As an X-linked condition, Fabry disease mainly affects males, although females can also be affected.
BACKGROUND: Fabry disease (FD) is an X-linked lysosomal storage disorder frequently associated with cerebrovascular disease. In recent years, the prevalence of FD has been reported to be up to 4% in cryptogenic young stroke patients. However, there have been no population-based studies in unselected patients with transient ischaemic attack (TIA) or stroke across the full range of ages. METHODS: We determined the prevalence of FD mutations in consecutive patients from a population-based study of acute TIA or ischaemic stroke (Oxford Vascular Study). Analysis included amplifying of the α-galactosidase A gene by polymerase chain reaction, denaturing high-performance liquid chromatography (dHPLC) analysis and sequencing using standard automated sequencing protocols [Mutation Surveyor software (Softgenetics)] where the dHPLC indicated a possible mutation. RESULTS: Samples of 1046 consecutive patients (52% women; mean age 73.2 years; 15% age |60 years; 572 stroke; 474 TIA) were tested. No patient had a known
We developed a mass spectrometric procedure to quantify sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) in biological materials. The use of newly synthesized (13)C5 C18-S1P and commercial C17-S1P as internal standards rendered very similar results with respect to linearity, limit of detection and limit of quantitation. Caution is warranted with determination of plasma S1P levels. Earlier it was reported that S1P is elevated in plasma of Fabry disease patients. We investigated this with the improved quantification. No clear conclusion could be drawn for patient plasma samples given the lack of uniformity of blood collection and plasma preparation. To still obtain insight, plasma and tissues were identically collected from α-galactosidase A deficient Fabry mice and matched control animals. No significant difference was observed in plasma S1P levels. A significant 2.3 fold increase was observed in kidney of Fabry mice, but not in liver and heart. Comparative analysis of S1P in cultured fibroblasts from normal ...
Fabry disease is a rare X-linked hereditary disease caused by mutations in the AGAL gene encoding the lysosomal enzyme alpha-galactosidase A. Enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) is the current cornerstone of Fabry disease management. Involvement of kidney, heart and the central nervous system shortens life span, and fibrosis of these organs is a hallmark of the disease. Fibrosis was initially thought to result from tissue ischemia secondary to endothelial accumulation of glycosphingolipids in the microvasculature. However, despite ready clearance of endothelial deposits, ERT is less effective in patients who have already developed fibrosis. Several potential explanations of this clinical observation may impact on the future management of Fabry disease. Alternative molecular pathways linking glycosphingolipids and fibrosis may be operative; tissue injury may recruit secondary molecular mediators of fibrosis that are unresponsive to ERT, or fibrosis may represent irreversible tissue injury that ...
Introduction Fabry disease (FD) is a lysosomal storage disorder resulting in progressive nervous system, kidney and heart disease. Enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) may halt or attenuate disease progression. Since administration is burdensome and expensive, appropriate use is mandatory. We aimed to define European consensus recommendations for the initiation and cessation of ERT in patients with FD. Methods A Delphi procedure was conducted with an online survey (n = 28) and a meeting (n = 15). Patient organization representatives were present at the meeting to give their views. Recommendations were accepted with ≥75% agreement and no disagreement. Results For classically affected males, consensus was achieved that ERT is recommended as soon as there are early clinical signs of kidney, heart or brain involvement, but may be considered in patients of ≥16 years in the absence of clinical signs or symptoms of organ involvement. Classically affected females and males with non-classical FD should ...
Cerebral micro- and macroangiopathies are hallmarks of Fabry disease.17,20 It is hypothesized that lipid deposits in vascular endothelial and smooth muscle cells cause oxidative stress, vascular dysfunction, vessel occlusion, and tissue ischemia.21 These pathophysiological mechanisms are associated with an increased risk of premature stroke, progressive white matter lesions, and dolichoectasia as major clinical and neuroimaging correlates.17 Recent literature data indicate that stroke frequently occurs before the diagnosis of Fabry disease has been made and in the absence of other key signs of this disease.22. In contrast to the considerable number of studies on the presence of Fabry disease in patients with renal or cardiac disorders,4-11 only 2 studies reported on the prevalence of Fabry disease with neurologic hallmarks for this condition.13,16 Both studies focused on young patients with cryptogenic stroke. In a large cohort of 721 patients diagnosed with cryptogenic stroke, the prevalence of ...
Fabrys is an X-linked lysosomal storage disorder caused by a deficiency in the enzyme alpha-galactosidase A. As a result, a buildup of glycosphyngolipids in cellular lysosomes occurs, a process thought to lead to cellular dysfunction. The effects are particularly seen in the nervous system, causing painful acroparesthesias; cardiac myocytes, leading to hypertrophic cardiomyopathy; and the kidneys, where endothelial storage of glycosphingolipids leads to vascular insufficiency and glomerular damage. A typical affected male will manifest frequent episodes of burning limb pain starting in childhood, which unfortunately respond poorly to analgesics. Other early signs of Fabrys include gastrointestinal pain and hypohydrosis, due to involvement of nerves innervating the gut and skin. Angiokeratomas, small reddish-purple lesions characteristic of the disease, are often present, especially in the groin area (and are often missed on physical examination).. Cardiac and renal involvement usually manifest ...
In this paper, two cases of renal biopsy showing identical lipid deposits were presented. In the first case, these lipid deposits were due to inhibition of intralysosomal alpha-galactosidase A activity (presumable hydroxychloroquine-induced renal phospholipidosis) and in the second case, due to a mutation in the gene encoding the referred enzyme.. FD is a X-chromosome linked genetic disorder characterized by disturbance in glycosphingolipid catabolism, caused by a deficiency of the enzyme alpha-galactosidase A. Early signs and symptoms occur from childhood to adolescence and include intermittent paresthesia and acroparesthesia, "Fabry crisis" (episodes of intense pain), recurrent fever, angiokeratomas, cornea verticillata, mild proteinuria, globotriaosylceramide in urinary sediment and digestive symptoms such as both diarrhea and constipation, nausea, vomiting and abdominal cramps. Manifestations in adolescence and adulthood include renal disorders (which can progress to end-stage kidney ...

We thank Ripley and colleagues for their interest in our paper and agree that T1 mapping with CMR is an emerging imaging biomarker that is increasingly being investigated for its potential role in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and cardiac hypertrophy in general. Convincing data have been published concerning hypertensive heart disease(Hinojar et al., 2015), hypertrophic and dilated cardiomyopathy (Puntmann et al., 2013), transthyretin amyloidosis (Fontana et al., 2014) and Anderson-Fabry disease (Pica et al., 2014). We have not found any specific published data examining the role of T1 mapping in distinguishing ventricular septal bulge in an elderly population from other etiologies of hypertrophy. We therefore decided not to include T1 mapping in our review (Canepa et al., 2016) but concur that this technique may be potentially useful in the evaluation of ventricular septal bulge.
