VYVGART Hytrulo was found to be effective for adults with anti-AChR antibody positive gMG

The effectiveness of VYVGART Hytrulo was established through 2 studies.

SUBQ-Clipboard-study-RGB

In the VYVGART Hytrulo study, VYVGART Hytrulo for subcutaneous injection had a similar reduction in the harmful AChR antibodies that cause gMG symptoms as VYVGART for intravenous (IV) infusion.

IV=intravenous

VYVGART Hytrulo study design: The study compared antibody reduction in 110 adults (18 years or oldera) with gMG who remained on their current gMG treatment and were given either VYVGART Hytrulo for subcutaneous injection or VYVGART for IV infusion.

The criteria for participating in the study were the same as in the study that measured the safety and effectiveness of VYVGART for IV infusion.

aPatients in Japan were 20 years or older.

IV-Clipboard-study-RGB

In the VYVGART for IV infusion study, a reduction in harmful AChR antibodies was associated with improved daily abilities (reduction in total Myasthenia Gravis Activities of Daily Living [MG-ADL] score).

MG-ADL=Myasthenia Gravis Activities of Daily Living

VYVGART for IV infusion was evaluated in a global study of adults with anti-AChR antibody positive gMG.

The study examined the effectiveness and safety of VYVGART for IV infusion in 167 adults (18 years or oldera) with gMG. In addition to their current treatment, patients received either VYVGART for IV infusion or placebo.

Patients in this study needed to meet the following criteria:

  • Adult (18 or oldera)
  • Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of America (MGFA) clinical classification class II to IV
  • MG-ADL score of 5 or more
  • On a stable dose of their current gMG treatment throughout the study

Patients represented a range of adults with gMG:

  • Median time since gMG diagnosis was 9 years
  • Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of America (MGFA) class ranged from II to IV at the start of the study

The MG-ADL scale was used to measure gMG symptoms.

  • The MG-ADL scale assesses the impact of gMG on daily functions by measuring 8 signs or symptoms that are commonly affected in gMG: the ability to speak, chew, swallow, breathe, brush teeth or comb hair, and get out of a chair, as well as the frequency of double vision and eyelid droop
  • Each item is measured on a 4-point scale, where a score of 0 represents normal function and a score of 3 represents the loss of ability to perform that function. Total scores range from 0 to 24 points, with a higher score showing more severe gMG
  • VYVGART for IV infusion was determined to be effective if an anti-AChR antibody positive patient’s MG-ADL score decreased by 2 or more points and stayed at that level for 4 weeks or more in a row, with the first improvement occurring no later than 1 week after the last infusion of treatment cycle 1

VYVGART Hytrulo was safe in treating most patients studied

The safety of VYVGART Hytrulo was established through 2 studies.

The overall safety of VYVGART Hytrulo for subcutaneous injection was consistent with the safety profile of VYVGART for IV infusion, except patients on VYVGART Hytrulo for subcutaneous injection experienced more injection site reactions.

In the VYVGART for IV infusion study, the most common side effects for VYVGART for IV infusion–treated patients were respiratory tract infection, headache, and urinary tract infection. Additionally, more patients on VYVGART for IV infusion vs. placebo had lower white blood cell counts that were mild to moderate in severity.

In the VYVGART Hytrulo study, the most common side effects of VYVGART Hytrulo–treated patients were injection site reactions, 38% (21 of 55), and headache. Injection site reactions included injection site rash, redness of the skin, itching sensation, bruising, pain, and hives.

In the VYVGART Hytrulo study and its long-term safety study:

  • All injection site reactions were mild to moderate and didn’t lead to treatment discontinuation
  • The majority of injection site reactions occurred within 24 hours of injection and resolved on their own
  • The majority of injection site reactions occurred during the first treatment cycle and decreased with each subsequent cycle

Hypersensitivity reactions including rash, swelling under the skin, shortness of breath, and hives were observed in some VYVGART Hytrulo–treated patients.

Getting started with VYVGART

How VYVGART works

Because of VYVGART, immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibodies are reduced, including the harmful AChR antibodies that cause gMG symptoms.

VYVGART dosing

Your neurologist will work with you to help determine when you need another treatment cycle, with the aim to help manage your symptoms.§

What is the most important information I should know about VYVGART® (efgartigimod alfa-fcab) for intravenous (IV) infusion and VYVGART® HYTRULO (efgartigimod alfa and hyaluronidase-qvfc) for subcutaneous injection?

VYVGART and VYVGART HYTRULO may cause serious side effects, including:

  • Infection. VYVGART and VYVGART HYTRULO may increase the risk of infection. The most common infections for efgartigimod alfa-fcab-treated patients were urinary tract and respiratory tract infections. More patients on efgartigimod alfa-fcab vs placebo had below normal levels for white blood cell counts, lymphocyte counts, and neutrophil counts. The majority of infections and observed lower white blood cell counts were mild to moderate in severity. Your healthcare provider should check you for infections before starting treatment, during treatment, and after treatment with VYVGART or VYVGART HYTRULO. Tell your healthcare provider if you have any history of infections. Tell your healthcare provider right away if you have signs or symptoms of an infection during treatment with VYVGART or VYVGART HYTRULO such as fever, chills, frequent and/or painful urination, cough, pain and blockage of nasal passages/sinus, wheezing, shortness of breath, fatigue, sore throat, excess phlegm, nasal discharge, back pain, and/or chest pain. If a serious infection occurs, your doctor will treat your infection and may even stop your VYVGART or VYVGART HYTRULO treatment until the infection has resolved.
  • Undesirable immune reactions (hypersensitivity reactions). VYVGART and VYVGART HYTRULO can cause the immune system to have undesirable reactions such as rashes, swelling under the skin, and shortness of breath. Hives were also observed in patients treated with VYVGART HYTRULO. In clinical studies, the reactions were mild or moderate and occurred within 1 hour to 3 weeks of administration, and the reactions did not lead to treatment discontinuation. Your healthcare provider should monitor you during and after treatment and discontinue VYVGART or VYVGART HYTRULO if needed. Tell your healthcare provider immediately about any undesirable reactions to VYVGART or VYVGART HYTRULO.
