The intended audience is inherited metabolic disease specialists, lysosomal storage disorder specialists, clinical geneticists, genetic counselors, cardiologists, hepatologists, neuromuscular specialists, neurologists, internal medicine, primary care providers, physician assistants and other HCPs involved in the diagnosis and management of Pompe disease
Pompe disease (PD) is a rare lysosomal storage disorder for which early diagnosis and treatment intervention with enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) are key to successful patient outcomes. This activity will discuss the keys to recognizing clinical presentations suggestive of PD, particularly in the absence of newborn screening, and the necessary steps for diagnosis. The clinical utility of ERT and the role of next-generation formulations will be examined alongside decision-making strategies for ERT initiation, selection, and switching. Finally, multidisciplinary strategies for monitoring disease progression and enhancing supportive care will be discussed.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:
