How do I apply for the Elelyso patient assistance program?
Our application process aims to make it as easy as possible to apply for the Elelyso patient assistance program. The first step is to complete our online enrollment application. We will ask you for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income as this information is required by the pharmaceutical companies.

What is Elelyso?
Elelyso is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Pfizer, Inc. Elelyso (taliglucerase alfa) for injection is a hydrolytic lysosomal glucocerebroside-specific enzyme indicated for long-term enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) for adults with a confirmed diagnosis of Type 1 Gaucher disease.
Gaucher disease is a rare inherited disorder, in which people do not have enough of an enzyme called glucocerebrosidase, which normally breaks down a fat called glucocerebroside. Without the enzyme, glucocerebroside builds up in the body, typically in the liver, spleen, bone, and some other tissues, causing a wide range of problems such as anemia (low red blood cell counts), thrombocytopenia (reduced platelet count), tiredness, easy bruising, and a tendency to bleed, an enlarged spleen and liver, and bone pain and fractures.
Because the number of patients with Gaucher disease is low, the disease is considered ‘rare’, and Elelyso was designated an ‘orphan medicine’ (a medicine used in rare diseases).
What doses of Elelyso are available?
Elelyso is available for injection, in lyophilized powder for reconstitution with diluent, in the following doses: 200 Unit single-use vials.
The recommended dose is 60 units/kg of body weight administered once every 2 weeks as a 60-120 minute intravenous infusion. Patients currently being treated with imiglucerase for Gaucher disease can be switched to Elelyso. Physicians can make dosage adjustments based on the achievement and maintenance of each patient’s therapeutic goals.
Read the full prescribing information and always speak with a healthcare professional about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
