  • Publication number: 20210275751
    Abstract: Plunger rod stops attach to existing syringes to limit the range of motion of the plunger, thereby to precisely control the amount of liquid that can be expelled from the syringe when the plunger rod stop is in place. In some embodiments, plunger rod stop devices generally include a body configured to attach to the plunger, and a stand-off extending from the body, configured to contact the finger flange when the plunger is depressed. In other embodiments, the plunger rod stop attaches to the finger flange or other fixed component of the syringe and the stand-off is configured to contact the plunger or plunger rod. Methods of the invention involve using the devices to interfere with the range of motion of the plunger, then reconfiguring or removing the device to allow the plunger to be moved a predetermined length, which corresponds to a precise dosage amount.

  • Publication number: 20210098103
    Abstract: A drug monitoring tool comprises a data receiver and an interactive user interface. The data receiver is configured to receive a pharmacokinetic (PK) profile of a patient. The interactive user interface is configured to display, to the patient, a time-varying therapeutic plasma protein level of the patient and delineate a plurality of zones within the interactive user interface associated with the time-varying therapeutic plasma protein level. The plurality of zones includes a safe zone indicating to the patient that the time-varying therapeutic plasma protein level is within a first concentration range considered safe for physical activity and a danger zone indicating to the patient that the time-varying therapeutic plasma protein level is within a second concentration range and physical activity should be limited.

    Abstract: The invention provides a composition of glucocerebrosidase, such as velaglucerase alfa, and isofagomine, in a molar ratio of at least about 1:2.5. Also provided is a use of the composition for treatment of a disorder related to a dysfunction in a GCase pathway. The disorder could be a lysosomal storage disease, such as Gaucher disease, Fabry disease, Pompe disease, a mucopolysaccharidoses, or multiple system atrophy. The disorder could also be a neurodegenerative disorder, such as Parkinson disease, Alzheimer's disease, or Lewy body dementia. The composition can have 0.5 to 5.0 mg/kg of glucocerebrosidase and isofagomine in at least about a 3-fold molar excess to the glucocerebrosidase. The composition can be administered intravenously or subcutaneously.

  • Patent number: 10760112
    Abstract: The present invention provides, among other things, methods and compositions for determining enzyme kinetic parameters (e.g., Vmax, Km, and specific activity, etc.) indicative of clinically relevant properties of glucocerebrosidase using a physiologically relevant substrate, in particular, a substrate that is representative of substrates that typically accumulate in patients suffering from Gaucher disease such as glucosylceramide. Thus, the present invention is particularly useful to measure a kinetic parameter relating to the activity of glucocerebrosidase in a drug substance, drug product, and stability sample for enzyme replacement therapy.
