ViroPharma Initiates Phase 2 Study of C1 Esterase Inhibitor [Human] for Treatment of Antibody-Mediated Rejection (AMR)
Date:3/29/2011

mercially known as Cinryze® (C1 Esterase Inhibitor [Human]), is indicated for routine prophylaxis against angioedema attacks in adolescent and adult patients with hereditary angioedema (HAE), a rare, debilitating and potentially fatal disease.

About Antibody Mediated Rejection

Antibody-mediated rejection is a type of organ transplant rejection that occurs when a patient has antibodies circulating in their blood against the donor organ (i.e. donor specific antibodies, or DSA).  These antibodies can activate the body's own defense mechanism, known as the complement cascade, which in turn causes a complement-mediated destruction of the transplanted organ.  Since there is no approved treatment for AMR, many thousands of renal failure patients that have DSA cannot be transplanted.  Furthermore, over time, all transplant patients can develop DSA and could lose their transplant to a chronic version of antibody/complement-mediated rejection of the transplanted organ.
