Cases and Conversations: Patient-Minded Approaches to Managing Fabry Disease

Cases and Conversations: Patient-Minded Approaches to Managing Fabry Disease


Tuesday, April 14, 2020

Live Webcast: 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM EDT

Overview

Fabry disease is a rare, genetic, X-linked lysosomal storage disorder caused by absence or deficiency of the enzyme alpha-galactosidase A (α-GAL A), resulting from mutations in the GLA gene. Glycosphingolipids (Gb3 or lyso-Gb3) accumulate in the lysosomes of a variety of cells, including small blood vessels, kidneys, heart, and nervous system. This progressive lipid accumulation causes cell damage, leading to tissue remodeling, fibrosis, ischemia, and organ dysfunction. Due to the consequences of Fabry disease, early diagnosis is extremely vital in patients so effective treatment can be started. Delays in the diagnosis of Fabry disease have been attributed to the insidious development of the disease. Health care professionals often do not recognize the different manifestations of Fabry disease. The discussion will use a series of cases to foster discussion of new data and sharing of best practices that address unmet needs in Fabry disease.

Target Audience

This educational program is directed toward geneticists, genetic counselors, pediatricians, endocrinologists, primary care physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and other health care professionals who are involved in the care of patients with Fabry disease.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Review the varied spectrum of phenotypic presentation and underlying genotypes in patients with Fabry disease
  • Discuss appropriate testing in the workup of patients with Fabry disease and confirmation of disease-causing GLA mutation
  • Evaluate the efficacy and safety of ERT and small molecule chaperone therapies and the treatment selection for patients with specific genotypes of Fabry disease
  • Apply clinical trial evidence and testing information to optimize the management of patients with Fabry disease
