Possible new treatment for CIDP

Posted by aaron_az @aaroncush, May 26 10:33am

I don’t have CIDP but know there are people here that do. Credit goes out to Reddit where someone posted this in the Small Fiber Neuropathy subreddit:

“Efgartigimod, a human immunoglobulin G (IgG)1 antibody Fc fragment, blocks the neonatal Fc receptor, decreasing IgG recycling and reducing pathogenic IgG autoantibody levels. ADHERE assessed the efficacy and safety of efgartigimod PH20 subcutaneous (SC; co-formulated with recombinant human hyaluronidase PH20) in chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP). …
Participants treated with efgartigimod PH20 SC maintained a clinical response and remained relapse-free longer than those treated with placebo.“
