MBP 196.0 Ultomiris (Ravulizumab-cwvz)
Ultomiris (Ravulizumab-cwvz) is a humanized monoclonal antibody which is a terminal complement inhibitor that specifically binds to the complement protein C5 (with high affinity), inhibiting its cleavage to C5a (the proinflammatory anaphylatoxin) and C5b (the initiating subunit of the terminal complement complex [C5b-9]) and preventing generation of the terminal complement complex C5b9. The C5 inhibition of complement-mediated hemolysis achieved by ravulizumab in patients with paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria is immediate, thorough, and sustained.
