  Purpose

New studies indicate that in about 1 - 2 percent of the younger stroke patients the cause could have been an undiagnosed genetic disease, the so called Fabry disease. In this case certain fat molecules are not digested and broken down by the body - but remain in the cells. These fat molecules build up to dangerous levels, which start to damage the body, because they accumulate e.g. in the walls of the blood vessels. This accumulation in the blood vessels of the whole body may cause life-threatening malfunctions in the brain, inducing a stroke.

The purpose of this study is to investigate the stroke rehabilitation of Fabry patients during different therapeutic standard approaches for stroke and for Fabry disease (if any). During this study, stroke patients with Fabry disease will be monitored in greater detail to determine whether the differences in treatment are significant for patient recovery and on what they depend.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Determination of the relapse rate of acute cerebrovascular events with clinical relevance in patients with different prophylactic approaches [ Time Frame: 54 months study duration ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of acute CVEs without clinical significance but with obvious signs in MRI diagnosis [ Time Frame: 54 months study duration ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Quality of Life measured with the SF-36 [ Time Frame: 54 months study duration ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Beck Depression Inventory II (BDI II) [ Time Frame: 54 months study duration ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Brief Pain Inventory (BPI) [ Time Frame: 54 months study duration ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Rostocker Kopfschmerzfragen-Komplex (RoKoKo) (only in Austria and Germany) [ Time Frame: 54 months study period ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Habi test (only in Austrian and German centers) [ Time Frame: 54 months study duration ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Trail Making Test (TMT) [ Time Frame: 54 months study duration ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Functional neurological deficits measured by the Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE) [ Time Frame: 54 months study duration ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA

EDTA-blood and urine sample for central laboratory analysis of agalsidase antibodies and Gb3 for safety issues.

There will be a proteomic analysis in blood to check whether there will be the possibility to characterize a biomarker for Fabry disease.


Estimated Enrollment: 100
Study Start Date: April 2007
Estimated Study Completion Date: November 2013
Estimated Primary Completion Date: November 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Observation
Adult patients (18 - 55 years of age) with an acute cerebrovascular event of any etiology and the genetic diagnosis (a-galactosidase defect) of Fabry disease
Other: No intervention
Observational, epidemiological, prognosis study; no drug tested; only laboratory analysis and diagnostic interventions done.

Detailed Description:

In a group of young stroke patients with diagnosed Fabry disease the stroke rehabilitation will be investigated during different prophylactic therapeutic approaches. In this study the investigator will not be given any instructions on stroke and Fabry therapy.

All patients with any etiology of stroke and a diagnosed Fabry disease submitted to the stroke unit of the participating centres which commit to work with the EUSI (European Stroke Initiative) recommendations for stroke management and diagnosis will be included into the study.
