Summary
Brief summary
Atypical hemolytic-uremic syndrome is a serious, life-threatening rare and chronic disease believed to be caused by genetic mutations. Current treatment for the disease is inadequate.
Due to the uncontrolled complement activation seen in aHUS patients and the previously shown activity of eculizumab to selectively inhibit terminal complement activation, it has been decided to look in to the use of eculizumab in the treatment of serverely affected aHUS patients.
