"Soliris (Eculizumab) will aid the significant growth of Devic’s Syndrome treatment market throughout the forecast period"

Soliris (Eculizumab) is a terminal complement inhibitor owned by Alexion. Soliris works by specifically preventing activation of particular proteins in the complement system (C5a and C5b), which play a role in the treatment of Devic’s syndrome. Patients suffering with Devic’s syndrome possess AQP4 antibody-positive, the body’s immune system can turn against itself to produce autoantibodies against AQP4. Activation of anti-AQP4 autoantibodies leads to damage of vital cells in the CNS assisting further demyelination and death of neurons, primarily in the optic nerve and spinal cord. There are three promising molecules in Devic’s syndrome treatment pipeline such as Satralizumab – Phase 3 (Hoffmann-La Roche/ Chugai Pharmaceutical), MEDI-551- Phase 2/3 (MedImmune LLC), and RC18 – Phase 3 (RemeGen, Ltd.). Chugai Pharmaceutical launched Phase 2 results related to Satralizumab on 15 October 2018; it is an investigational humanized anti-IL-6 receptor recycling monoclonal antibody for the treatment of neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD).
