Soliris® is a first-in-class terminal complement inhibitor discovered, developed, and commercialized by Alexion. Soliris® works by inhibiting terminal complement, a part of the immune system that, when activated in an uncontrolled manner, plays a role in serious diseases like paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH), atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome (aHUS), and anti-acetylcholine receptor (AchR) antibody-positive generalized myasthenia gravis (gMG).1
Soliris® has earned some of the pharmaceutical industry’s highest honors for innovation, including the 2008 Prix Galien USA Award for Best Biotechnology Product and the 2009 Prix Galien France Award in the category of Drugs for Rare Diseases.
