Table 1 presents the profile from the 9-month double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial of 40 treatment-na?ve patients (Trial 1).
Patients were between the ages of 16 and 63 on the date of the first dose of study drug, and included 20 males and 20 females.
Patients were between the ages of 18 and 69 on the date of the first dose of CERDELGA, and included 87 females and 72 males.

2 DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION Select patients using an FDA-cleared test for determining CYP2D6 genotype (2.1) CYP2D6 EMs or IMs: 84 mg orally twice daily (2.2) CYP2D6 PMs: 84 mg orally once daily (2.2) Swallow capsules whole, do not crush, dissolve or open capsules (2.3)
The predicted exposures with 84 mg once daily in patients who are CYP2D6 PMs are expected to be similar to exposures observed with 84 mg twice daily in CYP2D6 IMs [see
Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)].
Some inhibitors of CYP2D6 and CYP3A are contraindicated with CERDELGA depending on the patient 's metabolizer status [see Contraindications (4)].
Reduce the dosage of CERDELGA to 84 mg once daily for: CYP2D6 EMs and IMs taking strong or
CERDELGA can be taken with or without food.
For patients currently treated with imiglucerase, velaglucerase alfa, or taliglucerase alfa, CERDELGA may be administered 24 hours after the last dose of the previous enzyme replacement therapy (ERT).
