Patients with LPLD
, which affects no more than one or two people per million, are unable to handle fat particles in their blood and are at risk of acute and potentially fatal inflammation of the pancreas.
It was also shown that Glybera significantly reduces the risk of pancreatitis in LPLD
Through this partnership Glybera will be available to LPLD
patients in Israel and the Palestinian Authority sooner than otherwise possible.
Glybera's approval means LPLD
patients, for the first time, have a medical treatment option for a very complex and severe disease," said Professor John Kastelein of the Department of Vascular Medicine at the Academic Medical Center of the University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
According to Don Knowlton, Clear Logic's vice president of marketing, "Clear Logic's patented LPLD
technology allows us to offer factory configurable devices with the same functionality and pin-out of Altera parts, but without any of the transistors that are associated with user-programmability.
Link Technology - Clear Logic's LPLD
products don't need any of the transistors that exist in the MAX interconnect array, and only a single transistor for each input term in the AND array.
is an orphan disease for which no treatment exists today.
Although the patient cohort is small, due to the rare nature of LPLD
, these results are very encouraging," explained Dr.
Glybera is a gene therapy for patients with the genetic disorder LPLD
, a very rare inherited condition that is associated with increased levels of chylomicrons.
According to Don Knowlton, Clear Logic's vice president of marketing, &uot;Our introduction of these new LPLD
products rounds out our offering of 5 volt Vcc CL7000 replacements for Altera's MAX 7000E and MAX 7000S families of CPLDs.
Clear Logic LPLD
devices are guaranteed to function identically to their programmable counterparts.
The loss of jobs and the knowledge that LPLD
patients in Europe will not be able to have access to an effective treatment is a huge regret for the management and board of AMT," explained Jorn Aldag, CEO of AMT.
