Aldurazyme How to Take

Aldurazyme (Laronidase) is used to treat mucopolysaccharidosis I (MPS I), a genetic disorder where the body does not have enough of an enzyme called alpha-L-iduronidase. Without this enzyme, substances called glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) build up in the body, causing tissue and organ damage.

Aldurazyme (Laronidase) works by replacing the missing enzyme, which helps the body break down GAGs - a process known as enzyme replacement therapy (ERT). Aldurazyme (Laronidase) is used to treat the symptoms of MPS I that occur in parts of the body other than the brain and spinal cord.

Your doctor may have suggested Aldurazyme (Laronidase) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles.

If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are being given Aldurazyme (Laronidase), speak to your doctor.
