Once Mateo was diagnosed with type 1 Gaucher disease as a teenager, his parents and physician came up with a treatment plan. After discussing the risks and benefits, they chose VPRIV as his treatment. Mateo received infusions at the hospital for the first 6 months and then transitioned to home infusions.4
When Mateo was 18 years old he moved away from his home in Miami, Florida, to attend university in New York City. Mateo and his parents planned for this transition and found an infusion center near his campus. He was able to schedule his infusions around his classes and settle into his new treatment schedule.
VPRIV can be infused in multiple settings, including at infusion centers and hospitals. Patients can also work with their HCPs to arrange for infusions to be taken at home.
Young adults are able to change infusion sites when going to college or moving away from home.
