Alglucerase is a modified form of human β-glucocerebrosidase where the non-reducing ends of the oligosaccharide chains have been terminated with mannose residues. Ceredase is a citrate buffered solution of Alglucerase manufactured by Genzyme Corporation from human placental tissue. It is given intravenously in the treatment of Type 1 Gaucher's disease although it has been largely replaced by Cerezyme® which is produced by Recombinant DNA technology.
