Myasthenia Gravis Understanding

Myasthenia Gravis: Overview

Myasthenia gravis (MG) is the most common disorder affecting the neuromuscular junction (NMJ) of the skeletal muscles. The classic presentation is a fluctuating weakness that is more prominent in the afternoon. It usually involves muscles of the eyes, throat, and extremities. The reduced transmission of electrical impulses across the neuromuscular junction due to the formation of autoantibodies against the specific postsynaptic membrane proteins consequently causes muscle weakness. A wide variety of conditions can precipitate MG, such as infections, immunization, surgeries, and drugs. Myasthenia gravis causes a significant number of complications. These include myasthenic crisis, an acute respiratory paralysis that requires intensive care, as well as adverse events due to long term medication treatment like opportunistic infections and lymphoproliferative malignancies. A complete understanding of the pathophysiologic mechanisms, clinical manifestations, treatment strategies, and complications of myasthenia gravis is necessary for better patient care and outcomes.

"Myasthenia Gravis - Pipeline Insight, 2021" report outlays comprehensive insights of present scenario and growth prospects across the indication. A detailed picture of the Myasthenia Gravis pipeline landscape is provided which includes the disease overview and Myasthenia Gravis treatment guidelines. The assessment part of the report embraces, in depth Myasthenia Gravis commercial assessment and clinical assessment of the pipeline products under development. In the report, detailed description of the drug is given which includes mechanism of action of the drug, clinical studies, NDA approvals (if any), and product development activities comprising the technology, Myasthenia Gravis collaborations, licensing, mergers and acquisition, funding, designations and other product related details.

Report Highlights

  • The companies and academics are working to assess challenges and seek opportunities that could influence Myasthenia Gravis R&D. The therapies under development are focused on novel approaches to treat/improve Myasthenia Gravis.

Myasthenia Gravis Emerging Drugs Chapters

This segment of the Myasthenia Gravis report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in different stages of clinical development, including phase II, I, preclinical and Discovery. It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.

Myasthenia Gravis Emerging Drugs

Efgartigimod: Argenx

Efgartigimod: Argenxfgartigimod is an investigational antibody fragment designed to decrease disease-causing immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibodies and inhibit the IgG recycling process. Results from Phase III clinical trial (ADAPT) showed treatment with efgartigimod provided clinically meaningful improvements in strength and quality of life measures in generalized myasthenia gravis (gMG). Efgartigimod is under U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) review with December 17, 2021 Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) target action date

Ravulizumab: Alexion Pharmaceuticals

Ravulizumab: Alexion Pharmaceuticalsavulizumab is the first and only long-acting C5 complement inhibitor. The medication works by inhibiting the C5 protein in the terminal complement cascade, a part of the body’s immune system. When activated in an uncontrolled manner, the complement cascade over-responds, leading the body to attack its own healthy cells. Alexion Pharmaceuticals reported positive topline results from a Phase III study evaluating the safety and efficacy of ravulizumab in adults with generalized myasthenia gravis (gMG). The company plans to make regulatory filings in the US, EU & Japan in late 2021 or early 2022, based on P-III results.

Inebilizumab: Horizon Therapeutics

Inebilizumab is a monoclonal antibody that binds to a protein called CD-19, found on the surface of immune B-cells. The therapy was designed to deplete these cells, which play a central role in the progression of autoimmune diseases like MG. In a $3.05 billion deal, Horizon Therapeutics acquired Viela Bio, the developer of inebilizumab, a potential treatment for autoimmune diseases such as myasthenia gravis. The therapy is currently being investigated in people with MG in a Phase III clinical trial that is now recruiting participants in Columbia.
