Efgartigimod

Efgartigimod is designed as a first-in-class investigational antibody fragment to target the neonatal Fc receptor (FcRn). Efgartigimod is being evaluated for the treatment of patients with severe autoimmune diseases with confirmed presence of pathogenic immunoglobulin G, IgG autoantibodies, where a severe unmet medical need exists.

  • Primary ITP is a rare, often chronic disorder where IgG antibodies cause reduced numbers of platelets leading to an increased risk of bleeding and bruising
  • IV efgartigimod and SC maintenance efgartigimod
  •  
  • CIDP is a rare, chronic disorder where damage to peripheral nerves, which may be caused by antibodies, results in progressive weakness and a loss of feeling in the arms and legs
  • SC efgartigimod (enabled with Halozyme's ENHANZE® drug delivery technology)
  • PV is a rare, chronic and severe skin disorder where antibodies damage the connections within the skin and cause patients to develop blisters in the skin and other body surfaces, including in the mouth, nose and eyes
