Is it safe for me to be taking agalsidase beta while I am pregnant?

There are no controlled studies of agalsidase beta's effect on pregnant women or developing babies. But studies in animals have not turned up any evidence of harm to a developing fetus. A registry is available for pregnant women who receive the drug and participation is voluntary. Information regarding the pregnancy registry may be obtained by visiting http://www.fabryregistry.com or by calling (800) 745—4447. If you are pregnant or planning to get pregnant, talk with your doctor about whether the benefits of the drug outweigh any possible risks.
