Agalsidase beta, an enzyme that metabolizes globotriaosylceramide (GL-3) and other glycosphingolipids, is a recombinant form of alpha-galactosidase A. It is used to substitute the enzyme to restore adequate enzymatic activity to clear up substrate accumulation in the tissues of the organ, thus preventing, stabilizing or reversing the progressive decrease in the function of these organs until irreversible harm occurs.
