Pompe Disease Cross-Reactive Immunological Material Status, Fibroblasts

Useful For Suggests clinical disorders or settings where the test may be helpful

Determination of cross-reactive immunologic material status in patients with Pompe disease


Evaluating the best strategy for enzyme replacement therapy for patients with Pompe disease


This test is used to determine cross-reactive immunological material (CRIM) status in patients with Pompe disease.


CRIM status is important when assessing whether immunosuppression is needed when initiating enzyme replacement therapy for patients with Pompe disease.

Testing Algorithm Delineates situations when tests are added to the initial order. This includes reflex and additional tests.

When this test is ordered, a fibroblast culture and cryopreservation for biochemical studies will always be performed at an additional charge. However, for multiple lysosomal enzyme assays on a patient utilizing fibroblast culture, only one culture is required regardless of the number of enzyme assays ordered. If viable cells are not obtained within 10 days, client will be notified.
