What is Nexviazyme?
Nexviazyme is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by the Sanofi Genzyme Corporation. Nexviazyme is a hydrolytic lysosomal glycogen-specific enzyme used to treat patients 1 year of age and older with late-onset Pompe disease, LOPD (lysosomal acid alpha-glucosidase [GAA] deficiency). An earlier enzyme replacement therapy (ERT), alglucosidase alfa, (also made by Sanofi Genzyme) was approved in 2006 for infantile-onset Pompe disease (IOPD).
What doses of Nexviazyme are available?
Nexviazyme is available in injection form, in the following doses: 100 mg.
Administer antihistamines, antipyretics, and/or corticosteroids before Nexviazyme administration to reduce the risk of Infusion-Associated Reactions (IARs). Nexviazyme is given as an intravenous infusion. For patients weighing 30 kg or more, the recommended dose is 20 mg/kg every two weeks. For patients weighing less than 30 kg, the recommended dose is 40 mg/kg every two weeks.
Always speak with your healthcare provider about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
