The purpose of this study is to assess the pharmacokinetics (PK), pharmacodynamics (PD), safety, and efficacy of ALXN1210 in pediatric patients with paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PN...
This study is designed to better understand the molecular biology of paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) and to determine if prion protein (PrP) functions in long term hematopoietic ...
Paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) is a rare acquired clonal hematological disorder, which can cause arterial or venous thrombosis. The frequency of PNH in young patients (< 50 year...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether LFG316 can induce a hematological response, as measured by reduction in hemolytic activity, in patients with PNH.
The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and effectiveness of ACH-0144471 in currently untreated patients with PNH.
Paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) is an uncommon but frequently debilitating disease that, if untreated, may lead to death in up to 35% of patients within 5 years. Assessment of PNH clone siz...
Since publication in 2010 of the International Clinical Cytometry Society (ICCS) Consensus Guidelines for detection of Paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) by flow cytometery, a great deal of wor...
Recent technological advances in genomics have led to the discovery of new somatic mutations and have brought deeper insights into clonal diversity. This discovery has changed not only the understandi...
Paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) arises as a consequence of the non-malignant clonal expansion of one or more hematopoietic stem cells with an acquired somatic mutation of the PIGA gene.(1) P...
A condition characterized by the recurrence of HEMOGLOBINURIA caused by intravascular HEMOLYSIS. In cases occurring upon cold exposure (paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria), usually after infections, there is a circulating antibody which is also a cold hemolysin. In cases occurring during or after sleep (paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria), the clonal hematopoietic stem cells exhibit a global deficiency of cell membrane proteins.
A parasomnia characterized by paroxysmal episodes of choreoathetotic, ballistic, dystonic movements, and semipurposeful activity. The episodes occur during non-rapid eye movement sleep and typically recur several times per night. (Neurology 1992 Jul;42(7 Suppl 6):61-67; Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p391)
A disorder characterized by recurrent episodes of paroxysmal brain dysfunction due to a sudden, disorderly, and excessive neuronal discharge. Epilepsy classification systems are generally based upon: (1) clinical features of the seizure episodes (e.g., motor seizure), (2) etiology (e.g., post-traumatic), (3) anatomic site of seizure origin (e.g., frontal lobe seizure), (4) tendency to spread to other structures in the brain, and (5) temporal patterns (e.g., nocturnal epilepsy). (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p313)
Involuntary shock-like contractions, irregular in rhythm and amplitude, followed by relaxation, of a muscle or a group of muscles. This condition may be a feature of some CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES; (e.g., EPILEPSY, MYOCLONIC). Nocturnal myoclonus is the principal feature of the NOCTURNAL MYOCLONUS SYNDROME. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp102-3).
The presence of free HEMOGLOBIN in the URINE, indicating hemolysis of ERYTHROCYTES within the vascular system. After saturating the hemoglobin-binding proteins (HAPTOGLOBINS), free hemoglobin begins to appear in the urine.
