Bone disease webinar
2021-04-29 15:00:00

Bone involvement is one of the most prevalent aspects of GD and a major cause of pain, disability, and reduced quality of life. All three types of Gaucher disease have bone disease in common and can have serious complications in those affected.

Existing therapies for Gaucher disease (ERT and SRT) are very effective in reversing some of the clinical manifestations of Gaucher disease such as anaemia, thrombocytopenia, etc. but skeletal responses are much slower. Some patients even after many years of treatment, still have bone crisis, bone pain or severe symptoms.

We will have two wonderful speakers:

  • Dr Patrick Deegan, MD, FRCP Edin, FRCPath from Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge UK who will give an introduction to bone disease; and
  • Dr Pramod Mistry, MD, PhD, FRCP, FAASLD from Yale School of Medicine who will talk about maintaining bone health through generations of Gaucher disease.

Each speaker will give a 30 minute lecture, followed by 30 minutes for questions and discussion.
