Genetics Center of Excellence

Supporting patients living with a rare genetic condition

Orsini’s Genetic Center of Excellence launched in 2009 with our first enzyme replacement therapy program. Today we support multiple programs across several rare genetic conditions. Our dedicated Therapy Care Teams work with the physician’s office and insurance on a patient’s behalf so that our patients and their family have more time to focus on their treatment and quality of life. We are here to listen, provide counseling on treatment, including side-effect management, and assist with sourcing third-party financial assistance.

About Acid Sphingomyelinase Deficiency (ASMD)

Historically known as Niemann-Pick disease types A, A/B and B, acid sphingomyelinase deficiency is an extremely rare, progressive genetic disease. It is estimated that there are fewer than 120 patients in the U.S. diagnosed with ASMD; the majority are children. ASMD is caused by the lack of an enzyme needed to break down a complex lipid, called sphingomyelin, in cells. This can lead to a buildup of sphingomyelin in the liver, spleen, lungs, and brain. Signs and symptoms of ASMD can appear in infancy, childhood, or adulthood, and may include enlarged spleen or liver, breathing issues, lung infections, unusual bruising or bleeding due to low platelet count, as well as pain, vomiting, feeding difficulties and falls caused by an enlarged abdomen.

About CD55-Deficient Protein-Losing Enteropathy (CHAPLE) Disease

CHAPLE disease (also known as CD55 deficiency with hyperactivation of complement, angiopathic thrombosis, and protein losing enteropathy, or CD55-deficient protein-losing enteropathy) is an ultra-rare hereditary condition characterized by an inability to regulate complement activity because of mutations in the CD55 gene. In most patients, this leads to potentially life-threatening symptoms beginning in infancy, including abdominal pain, bloody diarrhea, vomiting, malnutrition, slow growth, and edema. There are fewer than 100 patients worldwide who are known to have CHAPLE disease.

About Fabry disease

Fabry disease belongs to a group of diseases known as lysosomal storage disorders. It is a rare inherited disorder of lipid (fat) metabolism which results from the deficient activity of the enzyme, alpha-galactosidase A (a-Gal A). This leads to a buildup of a particular type of fat in the body’s cells, called globotriaosylceramide or GL-3, that affects many parts of the body. Signs and symptoms may include episodes of pain, particularly in the hands and feet, clusters of small, dark red spots on the skin, a decreased ability to sweat, cloudiness of the front part of the eye and hearing loss. Complications such as progressive kidney damage, heart attack, and stroke can be life-threatening.

About Long-Chain Fatty Acid Oxidation Disorders (LC-FAOD)

Long-chain fatty acid oxidation disorders are a group of autosomal recessive genetic disorders characterized by metabolic deficiencies in which the body is unable to convert long-chain fatty acids into energy. The inability to produce energy from fat can lead to severe depletion of glucose in the body and serious complications. Approximately 2,000-3,000 children and adults in the US are affected by LC-FAOD.

About Mucopolysaccharidosis Types I, II, VI, VII, IVA

Mucopolysaccharidoses are a group of inherited metabolic conditions in which the body either does not produce enough enzymes required to break down sugars into simpler molecules, or the body produces enzymes that do not work properly. Over time, molecules called glycosaminoglycans (sugar carbohydrates in each of our cells that help build bone, cartilage, tendons, corneas, skin, and connective tissue) collect in the cells, blood, and connective tissues, resulting in permanent, progressive cellular damage. The cellular damage affects the appearance, physical abilities, organ and system functioning, as well as cognitive development.  Several different clinical types of Mucopolysaccharidosis have been identified: MPS I also known as Hurler, Hurler-Scheie, and Scheie; MPS II also known as Hunter syndrome; MPS III also known as Sanfilippo syndrome; MPS IV also known as Morquio syndrome; MPS VI also known as Maroteaux-Lamy syndrome; MPS VII also known as Sly syndrome; and ​MPS IX also known as Natowicz syndrome.

About Pompe Disease

Pompe disease is an inherited disorder caused by the buildup of glycogen, a complex sugar, in the body’s cells, which impairs the ability for affected organs, tissues, and muscles to function normally.
