Lanadelumab, a First-of-Its-Kind Prevention Treatment in Hereditary Angiodema (HAE)

Learning objectives: Leading international HAE experts will lead a symposium to review the clinical data for lanadelumab*, which was approved by the European Commission in 2018. The audience will learn about the burden and unpredictability of the disease and the opportunity to redefine HAE prevention with lanadelumab. The speakers will present the clinical efficacy data, dosing and safety profile, as observed in the phase 3 HELP study. The symposium will incorporate both real-world experiences and supporting clinical data to introduce lanadelumab as a first-of-its-kind preventive treatment for HAE.
*lanadelumab is a fully human monoclonal antibody produced in Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) cells by recombinant DNA technology.
