Comments
Ravulizumab (ALXN1210) is a humanized monoclonal antibody that binds to human complement component C5. It was developed by Alexion as a next-generation anti-C5 therapy for paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) that was engineered from their already approved PNH agent eculizumab, but was designed to have an inhherently longer circulating half-life so as to extend dosing intervals to once/month [3].
Peptide sequence and secondary structural information for this antibody are available from its IMGT/mAb-DB record.
