Summary of Clinical Use
Afegostat is an experimental drug for the treatment Gaucher's disease, which is caused by mutations in the β-glucocerebrosidase gene (GBA, P04062). This drug (as isofagomine tartrate) has been granted orphan status by the European Medicines Agency for this indication.
Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects
Afegostat binds β-glucocerebrosidase (GBA, P04062), a lysosomal enzyme that hydrolyses glucocerebroside as a step in glycolipid metabolism.
