IgG=immunoglobulin G

Results with VYVGART

When added to their current gMG treatment, VYVGART helped clinical trial participants with anti-AChR antibody positive gMG achieve:

Improved daily abilities

68% (44 of 65) of participants on VYVGART achieved significant improvement in their ability to perform daily activities*

Reduced muscle weakness

63% (41 of 65) of participants on VYVGART achieved a significant reduction in muscle weakness

*Improvement maintained for 4 or more weeks was measured by a decrease of 2 or more points on the Myasthenia Gravis Activities of Daily Living (MG-ADL) scale, with the first reduction occurring no later than 1 week after the last infusion of treatment cycle 1. The MG-ADL scale assesses the impact of gMG on daily functions by measuring 8 signs or symptoms that are commonly affected in gMG. 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.

†Improvement maintained for 4 or more weeks was measured by a decrease of 3 or more points on the Quantitative Myasthenia Gravis (QMG) scale, with the first reduction occurring no later than 1 week after the last infusion of treatment cycle 1. The QMG scale assesses muscle weakness in gMG based on 13 items. Each item is assessed on a 4-point scale, where a score of 0 represents no muscle weakness and a score of 3 represents severe muscle weakness. Total scores range from 0 to 39, with a higher score meaning muscle weakness is more severe.

What is the most important information I should know about VYVGART® (efgartigimod alfa-fcab)?

VYVGART may cause serious side effects, including:

  • Infection. VYVGART may increase the risk of infection. In a clinical study, the most common infections were urinary tract and respiratory tract infections. More patients on VYVGART vs placebo had below normal levels for white blood cell counts, lymphocyte counts, and neutrophil counts. The majority of infections and blood side effects were mild to moderate in severity. Your health care provider should check you for infections before starting treatment, during treatment, and after treatment with VYVGART. Tell your health care provider if you have any history of infections. Tell your health care provider right away if you have signs or symptoms of an infection during treatment with VYVGART 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.
  • Undesirable immune reactions (hypersensitivity reactions). VYVGART can cause the immune system to have undesirable reactions such as rashes, swelling under the skin, and shortness of breath. 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 VYVGART discontinuation. Your health care provider should monitor you during and after treatment and discontinue VYVGART if needed. Tell your health care provider immediately about any undesirable reactions.

Before taking VYVGART, tell your health care provider about all of your medical conditions, including if you:

  • Have a history of infection or you think you have an infection
  • Have received or are scheduled to receive a vaccine (immunization). Discuss with your health care provider whether you need to receive age-appropriate immunizations before initiation of a new treatment cycle with VYVGART. The use of vaccines during VYVGART treatment has not been studied, and the safety with live or live-attenuated vaccines is unknown. Administration of live or live-attenuated vaccines is not recommended during treatment with VYVGART.
  • Are pregnant or plan to become pregnant and are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed.

Tell your health care provider about all the medicines you take, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.
