Active ingredients: Agalsidase alfa
Replagal 1 mg/ml concentrate for solution for infusion.
Concentrate for solution for infusion.
A clear and colourless solution.
1 ml of concentrate for solution for infusion contains 1 mg of agalsidase alfa*.
Each vial of 3.5 ml of concentrate contains 3.5 mg of agalsidase alfa.
* agalsidase alfa is the human protein α-galactosidase A produced in a human cell line by genetic engineering technology.
For the full list of excipients, see section 6.1.
Agalsidase alfa catalyses the hydrolysis of Gb3, cleaving a terminal galactose residue from the molecule. Treatment with the enzyme has been shown to reduce accumulation of Gb3 in many cell types including endothelial and parenchymal cells. Agalsidase alfa has been produced in a human cell line to provide for a human glycosylation profile that can influence uptake by mannose-6-phosphate receptors on the surface of target cells.
