How Cerezyme Works

Cerezyme is an enzyme replacement therapy used in the treatment of Gaucher disease, a rare genetic disorder characterized by the deficiency of an enzyme called glucocerebrosidase. This enzyme deficiency leads to the accumulation of a fatty substance called glucocerebroside in various organs, particularly the spleen, liver, and bone marrow. Cerezyme works by supplying the missing enzyme glucocerebrosidase to the body, which helps to break down and remove the accumulated glucocerebroside from cells. By reducing the buildup of glucocerebroside, Cerezyme helps to alleviate symptoms and complications associated with Gaucher disease.
