The Pompe Registry is an important program that Genzyme sponsors and administers. A disease registry contains medical information on patients with a specific condition, in a database that can be analyzed and used by physicians treating patients with the same condition. Registries have proven to be especially valuable in rare diseases like Pompe disease. Information submitted to the Pompe Registry will be maintained as confidential in accordance with applicable national privacy regulations and other state and local laws related to medical information.
