There is evidence of moderate methodological quality based on a randomized study, one systematic review and case series with few patients showing that miglustat stabilizes or discretely improves neurological progression measured as speed of saccadic movements and swallowing in Niemann-Pick disease type C patients with neurologic manifestations.

Pharmacological and genetic modifications of somatic cholesterol do not substantially alter the course of CNS disease in Niemann-Pick C mice. Within affected offspring, the chromosome 18 parental contribution was identical, as demonstrated by allele-specific microsatellite markers. Overall, the findings were consistent with a selective vulnerability of certain neuronal populations; the more widespread white matter changes were consistent with the hypothesis that disrupted myelination and axonal structure may predate changes to the neuronal cell body.

There appeared to be a correlation between the clinical phenotype and severity of the biochemical lesion. The hepatic storage underlying the cirrhosis was typically inconspicuous; however, sea-blue histiocytes in the marrow could be considered a valuable diagnostic clue.

I Conception and design: Most notably, the clinical phenotype of the double mutant mice, in the absence of CNS ganglioside accumulation and associated neuronal pathology, did not improve. With the fifth edition of The Metabolic Basis of Inherited Disease, types A, B, and C were said to ‘appear to be allelic disorders in which 1 of at least 3 different mutations affects the activity of sphingomyelinase’ Brady, However, by observing the data shown in their published Figures, it can be inferred that: This content is reviewed regularly and is updated when new and relevant evidence is made available.

Miglustat is expected to delay the neurological symptoms of NPC, with greater benefits in patients with a late onset of the disease. Significant linkage of NPC to an 18p genomic marker, D18S40, was indicated by a 2-point lod score of 3.


Niemann-Pick type C NP-C is a treatable inherited, irreversible and chronically debilitating neurovisceral disease with a minimal incidence previously estimated to be 1: At present, there is no cure for NP disease and potential therapies should be addressed. Unfortunately no treatment has yet proven able to change the actual course of NPC.

Amiri M, Naim HY. Studying a year-old Nova Scotian case, Rao and Spence found elevated sphingomyelin, especially in the spleen, and even greater elevation of free cholesterol.

Imrie and Wraith described 4 patients with Niemann-Pick disease type C in whom the presentation was isolated splenic enlargement; this tkpo the only abnormality for a number of years. In 1 family linkage to this region was excluded, suggesting the existence of a separate gene that codes for an additional component required for intracellular movement of cholesterol see below.

Patients with more severe biochemical, cognitive, and symptom deficits performed most poorly on brainstem and frontal ocular motor measures.

The events of the pathologic process had previously been considered to be elicited by lysosomal deficiency, but this study showed disturbances similar to those in a number of peroxisomal diseases. This section is intended for healthcare professionals outside of the US only.

Niemann-Pick disease treatment: a systematic review of clinical trials

Although hepatosplenomegaly is a consistent finding in children in the infantile form of the disease, hepatomegaly is often absent in the adult forms and splenomegaly, although generally present, is not pronounced.

Professionals Anesthesia guidelines Englishpdf Review article English Clinical genetics review English This was observed both in children and in children above 12 years old. Lipid imbalance in the neurological disorder, Niemann-Pick C disease.

An animal model of human acid sphingomyelinase deficiency Niemann-Pick disease and the study of its enzyme replacement. All authors; VI Manuscript plck For this purpose, several clinical trials have been published to assess the effects, advantages and disadvantages of recently discovered treatments for NP disease.

Common manifestations of both disease types are hepatosplenomegaly and appearance of cherry-red spots in the retina 15 whereas neurodegeneration is only manifest in patients with NPA 4 Clinical spectrum of Niemann-Pick disease type C.


Disclaimer You are now leaving the NPC-info. Preliminary enferjedad by Galanaud and co-workers reported that miglustat had some beneficial effect on brain dysfunction in NPC after a month treatment All authors; VII Final approval of manuscript: Feline sphingolipidosis resembling Niemann-Pick disease type C.

Feline Niemann-Pick disease type C. Subsequently, type C proved to be due to mutation in a different gene on a different chromosome from that mutant in types A and B. Authors’ conclusions There is evidence of moderate methodological quality based on a randomized study, one systematic review and case series with few patients showing that miglustat stabilizes or discretely improves neurological progression measured as speed of saccadic movements and swallowing in Niemann-Pick disease type C patients with neurologic manifestations.

Further support for the genetic heterogeneity was provided by Vanier et al. In general, the most common symptoms of NPC include hepatosplenomegaly and neurologic deterioration with ataxia, motor pathologies and horizontal saccadic eye movements HSEM 11141719 – Generalmente, los pacientes padecen problemas para respirar y mueren en la adolescencia o en la etapa adulta temprana.

Niemann-Pick disease type C. Abstract The aim of this systematic review was to analyse all the published clinical trials assessing treatments for Niemann-Pick NP disease. J Child Neurol ; Metabolic Basis of Inherited Disease.

Niemann-Pick disease, type C: Filipin test for diagnosis of Niemann-Pick disease type C. Cholesterol esterification and cholesterol accumulation in lysosomes. Phenotypes 1 and 2 have been observed in the same sibship. Patients in the first group spanned the whole spectrum of clinical and cellular phenotypes. This website focuses niemanj Niemann-Pick type C and does not include information about the other forms of Niemann-Pick disease.

Wraith JE, Imrie J. The electron microscopic appearance of peroxisomes did not show any large changes.
