Elelyso How to Take

Taliglucerase alfa belongs to the class of medications called enzyme replacement therapies. Specifically, it is a replacement for the enzyme glucocerebrosidase, a protein that is normally found in the body and is responsible for breaking down certain types of fatty substances.

It is used to treat adults with Type 1 Gaucher disease and children with Type 1 and Type 3 Gaucher disease. Gaucher disease is a rare genetic condition where the protein responsible for breaking down certain waste products in the cells is not present or as active as it needs to be.

Taliglucerase alfa works by replacing this enzyme, so the body can recycle the wastes normally.
