Galsulfase

What Is Galsulfase?

Galsulfase contains an enzyme that occurs naturally in the body in healthy people. Some people lack this enzyme because of a genetic disorder. Galsulfase helps replace this missing enzyme in such people.

Galsulfase is used to treat some of the symptoms of a genetic condition called mucopolysaccharidosis VI (MYOO-koe-pol-ee-SAK-a-rye-DOE-sis type 6), or MPS VI, also called Maroteaux-Lamy syndrome.

MPS VI is a metabolic disorder in which the body lacks the enzyme needed to break down certain natural substances. These substances can build up in the body, causing enlarged organs, abnormal bone structure, changes in facial features, breathing problems, heart problems, vision or hearing loss, and changes in mental or physical abilities.

Galsulfase may improve walking and stair-climbing ability in people with this condition. However,this medication is not a cure for MPS VI.

Galsulfase may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.

Some side effects may occur during the galsulfase infusion, or up to 24 hours afterward.Tell your caregiver rightaway if you feel dizzy, light-headed, itchy, or if you have hives, chest pain, stomach pain, fever, trouble breathing, eye irritation, or swelling in your face.

You should not use this medication if you are allergic to galsulfase.

To make sure galsulfase is safe for you, tell your doctor if you have:

  • asthma, or sleep apnea (breathing stops during sleep);
  • fever, flu symptoms, or a common cold;
  • kidney disease;
  • heart disease;
  • epilepsy; or
  • migraine headaches.

Your name may need to be listed on a MPS VI Registry while you are using this medicine. The purpose of this registry is to track the progression of this disorder and the effects that galsulfase has in long-term treatment.

Galsulfase is not expected to harm an unborn baby. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant.

It is not known whether galsulfase passes into breast milk or if it could harm a nursing baby. Tell your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby.

Some side effects may occur during the galsulfase infusion, or up to 24 hours afterward.Tell your caregiver rightaway if you feel dizzy, light-headed, itchy, or if you have hives, chest pain, stomach pain, fever, trouble breathing, eye irritation, or swelling in your face.

Get emergency medical help if you have any of thesesigns of an allergic reaction:hives; difficulty breathing; feeling like you might pass out; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.

Even though it may not be a side effect of galsulfase, increased pressure on the spinal cord is a complication of MPS VI that may occur while you are using galsulfase.Tell your doctor right away if you have any symptoms of spinal cord compression: back pain, loss of movement in any part of your body, loss of bowel or bladder control.

Call your doctor at once if you have:

  • snoring or sleep apnea, trouble breathing;

Galsulfase Dosage

Galsulfase is injected into a vein through an IV. You will most likely receive this injection in a clinic or hospital setting.

Galsulfase must be given slowly through an IV infusion, and can take at least 4 hours to complete.

Galsulfase is usually given once per week. Follow your doctor's instructions.

About 30 to 60 minutes before each injection, you will be given other medications to help prevent a serious allergic reaction.
