Update from Genzyme on ASMD Development Efforts

Dear families and friends,

Genzyme, a Sanofi company, is continuing its efforts to develop a potential therapy for acid sphingomyelinase deficiency (ASMD, also known as Niemann-Pick disease Types A and B). The potential treatment is the enzyme replacement therapy recombinant human acid sphingomyelinase (rhASM); it is being evaluated for the treatment of the non-neurological manifestations of ASMD.

We have also learned that Genzyme and Mount Sainai are recruiting new patients for phase1b of the Enzyme replacement therapy.

To read the full update, please visit the Enzyme Replacement Therapy – Type B page.
