BACKGROUND To investigate the relationship between chemokines and cytokines and osteonecrosis in Gaucher disease, we conducted multiplex assays in a cohort of 100 adult patients. METHODS Mean age was 45 years (18-86); 92 Gaucher patients received imiglucerase (median duration 8 years (2-18)). Forty-three had experienced osteonecrosis (ON), and eight had ON despite enzyme therapy. Serum cytokines/chemokines were determined by fluorimetric bead arrays in samples from Gaucher patients and… CONTINUE READING
