The primary purpose of this study is to assess the safety, efficacy, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics of ravulizumab in participants who are prescribed and are receiving a higher than approved dose of eculizumab to treat paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH).

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the long-term safety of eculizumab in patients with transfusion dependent hemolytic PNH.
To evaluate the efficacy of ACH-0144471 plus eculizumab based on the increase in hemoglobin (Hgb) relative to baseline during 24 weeks of treatment.
This is a randomized, double-blind, active-controlled phase 3 study of ABP 959 in participants with paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria.
The purpose of this study is to assess ALXN1210 compared to eculizumab in adult patients with PNH who have not previously used a complement inhibitor.
This clinical study is a randomized, open-label, international, multi-center, comparative study of efficacy and safety of BCD-148 and Soliris® in PNH patients. It is planned to investiga...
Paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) is an ultra-orphan disease. We report the first case in the literature of Off-Pump Coronary Revascularization Using Bilateral Internal Thoracic Arteries in a ...
Paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) is a rare but often debilitating disease which may lead to death in up to 35% of patients within 5 years if unrecognized and untreated. Detection of PNH and ...
Paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) is an acquired life-threatening disorder that is extremely rare in the pediatric age. Patients with PNH may present a wide range of clinical manifestations. I...
Dysregulation of the complement system is linked to the pathogenesis of a variety of hematological disorders. Inhibition of complement component 5 (C5) with eculizumab has resulted in significant redu...
Paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) is a rare disease presenting with variable and various clinical findings. PNH might be overlooked and diagnosis may be delayed due to low awareness about PNH....
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.
