General Neurology
Join us for dinner as we discuss the phase 3 pivotal trial data for the recently approved VYVGARTTM (efgartigimod alfa-fcab). VYVGART offers a novel mechanism of action for treating anti-acetylcholine receptor (AChR) antibody positive generalized myasthenia gravis (gMG) in adults. gMG is a rare but debilitating disease, whereby pathogenic immunoglobulin G (IgG) autoantibodies cause failure of signal transmission at the neuromuscular junction. The neonatal Fc receptor (FcRn) is a molecule that recycles IgG antibodies, including pathogenic autoantibodies, rescuing them from lysosomal degradation and perpetuating the underlying pathophysiology behind gMG. VYVGART is a human IgG1-derived Fc fragment that blocks FcRn and prevents IgG recycling, resulting in a reduction of circulating IgG, including levels of pathogenic autoantibodies that impair neuromuscular transmission in adult patients with gMG who are anti-AChR antibody positive. Get your questions answered by our distinguished panelists, all directly involved in the pivotal trial.
