Hypersensitivity reactions, including serious hypersensitivity reactions such as anaphylaxis, occurred in ELELYSO-treated patients. In clinical trials, (patients were not routinely pretreated with antihistamines and/or corticosteroids prior to ELELYSO infusions during the clinical trials):
Due to the potential for anaphylaxis, appropriate medical support should be readily available during the ELELYSO infusion. Observe patients closely for 3 hours after the start of the infusion. Inform patients of the signs and symptoms of anaphylaxis, and instruct them to seek immediate medical care should signs and symptoms occur.
ELELYSO-treated patients who developed anti-taliglucerase alfa antibodies (referred to as anti-drug antibodies (ADA)) generally had a greater frequency of hypersensitivity reactions compared to those who did not develop ADA [see Adverse Reactions (6.1)]. Closely monitor for hypersensitivity reactions in patients who develop ADA.
Management of hypersensitivity reactions should be based on the severity of the reaction and includes slowing or temporary interruption of the infusion and/or administration of antihistamines, antipyretics, and/or corticosteroids for mild reactions. To reduce the risk of hypersensitivity reactions, consider pretreatment with antihistamines and/or corticosteroids. If severe hypersensitivity reactions including anaphylaxis occur, immediately stop the ELELYSO infusion and initiate appropriate treatment.
Consider the risks and benefits of re-administering ELELYSO in patients who have experienced a severe hypersensitivity reaction associated with ELELYSO. Caution should be exercised upon rechallenge [see Adverse Reactions (6.2)].

See 17 for PATIENT COUNSELING INFORMATION.
ELELYSO is indicated for the treatment of patients 4 years of age and older with a confirmed diagnosis of Type 1 Gaucher disease.
To reduce the risk of hypersensitivity reactions, consider pretreatment with antihistamines and/or corticosteroids [see Warnings and Precautions (5.1)].
Treatment-naïve Patients 4 Years of Age and Older
The recommended dosage of ELELYSO is 60 units/kg (based on actual body weight) administered every other week as a 60- to 120-minute intravenous infusion.
Patients 4 Years of Age and Older Switching from Imiglucerase
If it is acceptable to switch from a stable imiglucerase dosage to ELELYSO, initiate ELELYSO intravenous treatment (60- to 120-minute infusion) with the same units/kg imiglucerase dosage and subsequently administer ELELYSO every other week. Dosage adjustments can be made based on achievement and maintenance of each patient's therapeutic goals.
ELELYSO should be reconstituted, diluted, and administered under the supervision of a healthcare professional.
Prepare ELELYSO according to the following steps using aseptic technique:
After reconstitution and dilution, administer via intravenous infusion over a minimum of 60 minutes and with an in line low protein-binding 0.2 micron filter.
For injection: 200 units white to off-white lyophilized powder in a single-dose vial for reconstitution.
Because clinical trials are conducted under widely varying conditions, adverse reaction rates observed in the clinical trials of a drug cannot be directly compared to rates in the clinical trials of another drug and may not reflect the rates observed in practice.
Adverse Reactions from Clinical Trials of ELELYSO as Initial Therapy
The most common adverse reaction (≥10%) was vomiting, which occurred in 4 of 9 patients. Two patients developed hypersensitivity reactions; one patient experienced severe vomiting and gastrointestinal inflammation, and 1 experienced mild throat irritation and chest discomfort. Both patients responded to treatment with antihistamines and continued ELELYSO treatment.
Adverse Reactions in a Clinical Trial in Patients Who Switched from Imiglucerase to ELELYSO
The safety of ELELYSO was assessed in 31 patients (26 adult and 5 pediatric patients), ages 6 to 66 years old, with Type 1 Gaucher disease who had previously been receiving imiglucerase treatment for a minimum of 2 years (Trial 3). ELELYSO was administered intravenously every other week for 9 months at the same number of units as each patient's previous imiglucerase dose. Table 2 presents the adverse reactions in these ELELYSO-treated patients.
Pain in extremity
Immunogenicity: Anti-Drug Antibody-Associated Adverse Reactions
Trials 1, 2, and 3 evaluated ELELYSO enzyme replacement therapy (ERT)-naïve and ERT-experienced adult and pediatric patients with Gaucher disease [see Clinical Studies (14.1,14.2)]. In patients with Type 1 Gaucher disease, hypersensitivity reactions occurred in 36% (9/25) of ELELYSO-treated patients who developed ADA during the treatment period and in 15% (6/41) of ELELYSO-treated patients who did not develop ADA during the treatment period [see Warnings and Precautions (5.1) and Clinical Pharmacology (12.6)]. Of the 9 ELELYSO-treated patients who tested positive for ADA and who developed hypersensitivity reactions, 2 patients had anaphylaxis and 1 additional patient discontinued ELELYSO due to hypersensitivity reactions.
The following adverse reactions have been identified during post-approval use of ELELYSO. Because these reactions include those reported voluntarily from a population of uncertain size in addition to those from postmarketing studies, it is not always possible to reliably estimate their frequency or establish a causal relationship to drug exposure:
The limited available data on ELELYSO use in pregnant women are not sufficient to inform a drug-associated risk. However, there are clinical considerations [see Clinical Considerations]. In animal reproduction studies when pregnant rats and rabbits were administered taliglucerase alfa at intravenous doses up to 5 times the recommended human dose (RHD), there was no evidence of embryo-fetal toxicity [see Data]. The estimated background risk of major birth defects and miscarriage for the indicated population(s) are unknown. In the U.S. general population, the estimated background risk of major birth defects and miscarriage in clinically recognized pregnancies is 2 to 4% and 15 to 20%, respectively.
Disease-Associated Maternal and/or Embryo/Fetal Risk
Women with Type 1 Gaucher disease have an increased risk of spontaneous abortion if disease symptoms are not treated and controlled pre-conception and during a pregnancy. Pregnancy may exacerbate existing Type 1 Gaucher disease symptoms or result in new disease manifestations. Type 1 Gaucher disease manifestations may lead to adverse pregnancy outcomes, including hepatosplenomegaly which can interfere with the normal growth of a fetus and thrombocytopenia which can lead to increased bleeding and possible postpartum hemorrhage requiring transfusion.
Reproduction studies have been performed with taliglucerase alfa administered during the period of organogenesis in rats and rabbits. In rats, intravenous doses up to 55 mg/kg/day (about 5 times the RHD of 60 units/kg based on the body surface area) did not cause any adverse effects on embryo-fetal development. In rabbits, intravenous doses up to 27.8 mg/kg/day (about 5 times the RHD of 60 units/kg based on the body surface area) did not show any embryo-fetal toxicity.
There are no data on the presence of taliglucerase alfa in human milk, the effects on the breast fed infant or the effects on milk production. The developmental and health benefits of breastfeeding should be considered along with the mother's clinical need for ELELYSO and any potential adverse effects on the breastfed child from ELELYSO or from the underlying maternal condition.
The safety and effectiveness of ELELYSO for the treatment of pediatric patients 4 years of age and older with a confirmed diagnosis of Type 1 Gaucher disease has been established. The use of ELELYSO for this indication is supported by evidence of effectiveness from adequate and well-controlled trials of ELELYSO in adults, with additional pharmacodynamic data from 5 pediatric patients and pharmacokinetic data from 9 pediatric patients who participated in clinical trials [see Clinical Studies (14.1, 14.2), Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)]. Data from 14 pediatric patients were included in the safety evaluation [see Adverse Reactions (6.1)]. The safety and effectiveness of ELELYSO has not been established in patients less than 4 years of age.
Pediatric patients experienced a higher frequency of vomiting during ELELYSO treatment (4 of 9 treatment-naïve patients) than adult patients, and this may be a symptom of hypersensitivity reaction. The frequencies of other adverse reactions were similar between pediatric and adult patients treated with ELELYSO [see Adverse Reactions (6.1)].
During clinical trials, 8 patients aged 65 or older were treated with ELELYSO. Clinical trials of ELELYSO did not include sufficient numbers of patients aged 65 and over to determine whether they respond differently from younger patients.
Taliglucerase alfa is a hydrolytic lysosomal glucocerebroside-specific enzyme produced by recombinant DNA technology using plant cell culture (carrot). Taliglucerase alfa is a monomeric glycoprotein enzyme containing 4 N-linked glycosylation sites (kDa=60.8). Taliglucerase alfa differs from native human glucocerebrosidase by two amino acids at the N terminal and up to 7 amino acids at the C terminal. Taliglucerase alfa is a glycosylated protein with oligosaccharide chains at the glycosylation sites having terminal mannose sugars. These mannose-terminated oligosaccharide chains of taliglucerase alfa are specifically recognized by endocytic carbohydrate receptors on macrophages, the cells that accumulate lipid in Gaucher disease.
A unit is the amount of enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of 1 micromole of the synthetic substrate para-nitrophenyl-β-D-glucopyranoside (pNP-Glc) per minute at 37 °C.
ELELYSO (taliglucerase alfa) for injection is supplied as a sterile, preservative-free, lyophilized powder for reconstitution and dilution prior to intravenous infusion. Each single-dose vial contains 200 units of taliglucerase alfa and D-mannitol (206.7 mg), polysorbate 80 (0.56 mg), and sodium citrate (30.4 mg). Citric acid may be added to adjust the pH at the time of manufacture. After reconstitution with 5.1 mL Sterile Water for Injection, USP, taliglucerase alfa concentration is 40 units/mL [see Dosage and Administration (2)]. Reconstituted solutions have a pH of approximately 6.0.
Gaucher disease is an autosomal recessive disorder caused by mutations in the human glucocerebrosidase gene, which results in a reduced activity of the lysosomal enzyme glucocerebrosidase. Glucocerebrosidase catalyzes the conversion of the sphingolipid glucocerebroside into glucose and ceramide. The enzymatic deficiency results in accumulation of substrate glucocerebroside primarily in the lysosomal compartment of macrophages, giving rise to foam cells or "Gaucher cells," which accumulate in the liver, spleen and bone marrow.
ELELYSO, an enzyme replacement therapy, is a recombinant analog of human lysosomal glucocerebrosidase that catalyzes the hydrolysis of glucocerebroside to glucose and ceramide, reducing the amount of accumulated glucocerebroside. ELELYSO uptake into cellular lysosomes is mediated by binding of ELELYSO mannose oligosaccharide chains to specific mannose receptors on the cell surface leading to internalization and subsequent transport to the lysosomes.
Pharmacokinetics of taliglucerase alfa were evaluated in 38 patients (29 adult and 9 pediatric patients) who received intravenous infusions of ELELYSO 30 units/kg (50% of the recommended dosage) or 60 units/kg (the recommended dosage) [see Dosage and Administration (2.1)] every other week. The pharmacokinetic parameters in adult and pediatric patients are summarized in Table 3.
In adult Type 1 Gaucher disease patients treated with ELELYSO 30 units/kg (50% of the recommended dosage) or 60 units/kg (the recommended dosage) [see Dosage and Administration (2.1)] (N=29) every other week as initial therapy, pharmacokinetics were determined with the first dose and at Week 38 of treatment. The pharmacokinetics of taliglucerase alfa appeared to be nonlinear with a greater than dose-proportional increase in exposure at the doses studied.
No significant accumulation or change in taliglucerase alfa pharmacokinetics over time from Weeks 1 to 38 was observed with repeated dosages of 30 units/kg (50% of the recommended dosage) or 60 units/kg (the recommended dosage) [see Dosage and Administration (2.1)] every other week. Based on the limited data, there were no significant pharmacokinetic differences between male and female patients in this study.
The pharmacokinetics of taliglucerase alfa were evaluated in 9 pediatric patients 4 to 17 years of age with Type 1 Gaucher disease who were treated with ELELYSO for 10 to 27 months. Six of the 9 patients were treatment-naïve, and 3 patients were switched from imiglucerase. In both the 30 units/kg (50% of the recommended dosage) and 60 units/kg (the recommended dosage) [see Dosage and Administration (2.1)] dose groups, clearance values in pediatric patients were similar to those in adult patients. AUC values in pediatric patients were lower than AUC values in adult patients, due to weight-based dosing of taliglucerase alfa and lower body weights in pediatric patients.

The observed incidence of ADA (including neutralizing antibodies [Nab]) is highly dependent on the sensitivity and specificity of the assay. Differences in assay methods preclude meaningful comparisons of the incidence of ADA in the studies described below with the incidence of ADA in other studies, including those of ELELYSO or of other taliglucerase alfa products.
In Trials 1, 2, and 3, a greater portion of ELELYSO-treated patients who developed ADA had hypersensitivity reactions compared to those who did not develop ADA [see Adverse Reactions (6.1) and Warnings and Precautions (5.1)].
In Trial 1 (treatment-naïve adults with Gaucher disease) [see Clinical Studies (14.1)], 17 (53%) of 32 ELELYSO-treated patients developed ADA. Additionally 2 (6%) patients tested positive for ADA at baseline prior to ELELYSO treatment.
In Trial 2 (treatment-naïve pediatric patients with Gaucher disease) [see Clinical Studies (14.1)], 2 (22%) of 9 Type 1 Gaucher disease ELELYSO-treated patients developed ADA. Additionally, 1 patient was ADA-positive prior to initiation of ELELYSO.
In Trial 3 (switched from imiglucerase to ELELYSO), of 31 ELELYSO-treated patients (26 adult and 5 pediatric patients) [see Clinical Studies (14.2)], 6 adults (23% of adult patients) developed ADA and no pediatric patient developed ADA. Additionally, 3 (10%) patients were ADA positive prior to initiation of ELELYSO.
There is insufficient information to characterize the ADA response to ELELYSO and the effects of ADA on pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, or effectiveness of taliglucerase alfa products.
In Trials 1, 2 and 3 with a total number of 72 patients, 30 of the 31 ELELYSO-treated adult and pediatric patients who developed ADA or tested positive for ADA at baseline were evaluated for neutralizing activity of the ADA in the mannose receptor binding and enzyme activity assays.
Although the effectiveness was numerically lower (less spleen and liver volume reduction) in ELELYSO-treated patients who developed Nab compared to those that did not develop Nab, the data were not sufficient to fully assess whether the observed Nab reduces effectiveness.
Nine (29%) of the 31 ELELYSO-treated adult and pediatric patients who developed ADA during treatment or tested positive for ADA at baseline also developed antibodies against plant-specific glycans in ELELYSO.
Long-term studies in animals to evaluate carcinogenic potential or studies to evaluate mutagenic potential have not been performed with taliglucerase alfa. In a male and female fertility study in rats, taliglucerase alfa did not cause any significant adverse effect on male or female fertility parameters up to a maximum dose of 55 mg/kg/day (about 5 times the recommended human dose of 60 units/kg based on the body surface area).
Clinical Trial in Adult Patients
The safety and efficacy of ELELYSO in the treatment of adult patients with Type 1 Gaucher disease was assessed in a 9-month, multi-center, double-blind, randomized trial (Trial 1) in 31 adult patients with Gaucher disease-related enlarged spleens (>8 times normal) and thrombocytopenia (<120,000 /mm3). Sixteen patients had enlarged livers and ten patients had anemia at baseline. All patients were naïve to enzyme replacement therapy (ERT). Patients with severe neurological symptoms were excluded from the trial.
Patients were randomized to receive ELELYSO at an intravenous dosage of either 30 units/kg (n=15) (50% of the recommended dosage) or 60 units/kg (the recommended dosage) [see Dosage and Administration (2.1)] (n=16) every other week. After 9 months, 26 of the 31 patients continued in the blinded portion of the long-term extension trial for a total treatment duration of 24 months at the same intravenous dosage every other week. Twenty three of those 26 patients continued open-label ELELYSO treatment (30 or 60 units/kg given intravenously every other week) for an additional 12 months (total duration of ELELYSO treatment was 36 months).
In Trial 1, patients were 19 to 74 years of age (mean age 36 years), 48% were male, 97% were White and 29% and 71% were Hispanic/Latino and non Hispanic/Latino, respectively.
Table 4 shows the baseline values and mean (SD) changes in clinical parameters (spleen volume, liver volume, platelet count, and hemoglobin) after 9 months of ELELYSO treatment in Trial 1. Liver and spleen volumes were measured by MRI and are reported as percentage of body weight (%BW) and multiples of normal (MN). The observed reduction from baseline in spleen volume (the primary endpoint), was considered to be clinically meaningful in light of the natural history of untreated Gaucher disease.

The following data are the changes in clinical parameters from baseline to Month 24 (including the 9-month initial period and the 15-month first long-term extension) for the 30 units/kg (n=12) (50% of the recommended dosage) and 60 units/kg (the recommended dosage) [see Dosage and Administration (2.1)] (n=14) treatment groups, respectively: mean (SD) spleen volume (%BW) decreased by 1.4 (0.6) and 2.0 (2.0), in MN by 6.8 (3.0) and 10.2 (9.8); hemoglobin increased by 1.3 (1.7) g/dL and 2.4 (2.3) g/dL; liver volume (%BW) decreased by 1.1 (0.5) and 1.0 (0.7), in MN by 0.4 (0.2) and 0.4 (0.3 and platelet count increased 28,433 (31,996)/mm3 and 72,029 (68,157)/mm3. The 23 patients who continued open-label ELELYSO treatment for additional 12 months demonstrated stability in these clinical parameters.
Clinical Trial in Pediatric Patients 16 Years of Age and Younger
The safety and efficacy of ELELYSO in the treatment of pediatric patients with Type 1 Gaucher disease was assessed in a 12-month, multi-center, double-blind, randomized trial (Trial 2) in 9 treatment-naïve patients. Patients were randomized to receive ELELYSO at an intravenous dosage of either 30 units/kg (n=4) (50% of the recommended dosage) or 60 units/kg (the recommended dosage) [see Dosage and Administration (2.1)] (n=5) every other week. After 12 months, all 9 patients entered a blinded portion of the long-term extension trial (24-months of total treatment) where they continued treatment with ELELYSO at the same dosage every other week.
In Trial 2, patients were 2 to 13 years of age (mean age 8.1 years), 67% were male, 89% were White and 44% and 56% were Hispanic/Latino and non Hispanic/Latino, respectively.
The following data in Trial 2 are the changes [median (Q1, Q3)] in clinical parameters from baseline to Month 12 for the 60 units/kg dose group (n=5): spleen volume decreased from 18.4 (14.2, 35.1) MN to 11.0 (8.3, 14.5) MN; hemoglobin increased from 11.1 (9.2, 11.3) g/dL to 11.7 (11.5, 12.9) g/dL; liver volume decreased from 2.1 (2.0, 2.3) MN to 1.6 (1.5, 1.9) MN; platelet count increased from 80,000 (79,000, 87,000)/mm3 to 131,000 (119,000, 215,000)/mm3.
The following data are the changes [median (Q1, Q3)] in clinical parameters from baseline to Month 24 (including the initial 12-month period and the 12-month long-term extension) for the 60 units/kg dose group (n=5): spleen volume decreased by 19.0 (8.3, 41.2) MN; hemoglobin increased by 2.5 (1.9, 3.0) g/dL; liver volume decreased by 0.8 (0.6, 1.1) MN; and platelet count increased by 76,000 (67,000, 100,000)/mm3.
The safety and efficacy of ELELYSO were assessed in 31 patients (26 adult and 5 pediatric patients) with Type 1 Gaucher disease who were switched from imiglucerase to ELELYSO (Trial 3). Trial 3 was a 9-month, multi-center, open-label, single arm study in patients who had been receiving intravenous treatment with imiglucerase at dosages ranging from 9.5 units/kg to 60 units/kg every other week for a minimum of 2 years. Patients were required to be clinically stable and have a stable biweekly dosage of imiglucerase for at least 6 months prior to enrollment. Imiglucerase therapy was stopped, and treatment with ELELYSO was administered every other week at the same number of units as each patient's previous imiglucerase dose (9.5 units/kg to 60 units/kg given intravenously every other week). If needed, adjustment of dosage was allowed during the study in order to maintain stability of clinical parameters (i.e., spleen volume, liver volume, platelet count, and hemoglobin).
In Trial 3, patients were 6 to 66 years of age (mean age 42 years, including pediatric patients), 55% were male, 97% were White, and 16% and 84% were Hispanic/Latino and non Hispanic/Latino, respectively.
In Trial 3, at baseline, spleen volume was 5.2 (4.5) MN, liver volume was 1.0 (0.3) MN, platelet count was 161,137 (73,387)/mm3, and hemoglobin was 13.5 (1.4) g/dL. Mean (SD) organ volumes and hematologic values remained stable through 9 months of ELELYSO treatment. After 9 months of ELELYSO treatment, spleen volume was 4.8 (4.6) MN, liver volume was 1.0 (0.2) MN, platelet count was 161,167 (80,820)/mm3, and hemoglobin was 13.4 (1.5) g/dL. The ELELYSO dosage remained unchanged in 30 of 31 patients. One patient required a dose increase at Week 24 (from 9.5 units/kg to 19 units/kg) for a platelet count of 92,000/mm3 at Week 22, which subsequently increased to 170,000/mm3 at Month 9.
During the 36‑month period, 18 ELELYSO-treated adult patients maintained stability in clinical parameters (spleen volume, liver volume, platelet count and hemoglobin); however only 10 of 18 adult patients completed 27 months of ELELYSO treatment in the extension trial and only 7 patients had their spleen and liver volumes assessed at 36 months.
During the 33‑month period, the 5 ELELYSO‑treated pediatric patients demonstrated stability in these clinical parameters.
ELELYSO (taliglucerase alfa) for injection is supplied as a sterile, preservative-free, white to off-white lyophilized powder in a single-dose vial. Each vial of ELELYSO contains 200 units of taliglucerase alfa.
Each carton contains one vial (NDC 0069-0106-01).
Refrigerate ELELYSO at 2 °C to 8 °C (36 °F to 46 °F) in the original carton to protect from light. Do not freeze.
Hypersensitivity Reactions Including Anaphylaxis
Advise patients and caregivers that reactions related to administration and infusion may occur during and after ELELYSO treatment, including severe hypersensitivity reactions such as anaphylaxis. Inform patients of the signs and symptoms of hypersensitivity reactions, and have them seek medical care should signs and symptoms occur. Inform patients that they should be carefully re-evaluated for treatment with ELELYSO if serious hypersensitivity reactions, including anaphylaxis, occur. Reduction of the infusion rate and/or pre-treatment with antihistamines, antipyretics and/or corticosteroids may prevent subsequent reactions [see Warnings and Precautions (5.1)].
