Researchers To Present Data On Soliris® (eculizumab) As A Treatment For Patients With AHUS And STEC-HUS At ASN Annual Meeting

Stocks in this article: ALXN

Alexion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: ALXN) today announced that researchers are scheduled to present data from clinical studies of Soliris ® (eculizumab) in patients with atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome (aHUS) and Shiga toxin-producing E. Coli hemolytic uremic syndrome (STEC-HUS), two severe and life-threatening ultra-rare disorders caused by uncontrolled complement activation, at the annual meeting of the American Society of Nephrology (ASN). Abstracts summarizing these presentations were published today on the ASN website and can be accessed using the links below. The ASN annual meeting will be held October 30 – November 4, 2012 in San Diego, California.

Soliris is approved in the US, European Union, Japan and other countries as the first and only treatment for patients with paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH), a debilitating, ultra-rare and life-threatening blood disorder, characterized by complement-mediated hemolysis (destruction of red blood cells). Soliris is also approved in the United States as the first and only treatment for patients with atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome (aHUS), a debilitating, ultra-rare, life-threatening and chronic genetic disorder characterized by complement-mediated thrombotic microangiopathy (blood clots in small vessels). Soliris is not indicated for the treatment of patients with Shiga toxin-producing E. Coli hemolytic uremic syndrome (STEC-HUS).
