Uplizna

Uplizna

Uplizna is a prescription medicine used to treat adults with neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD) who are anti-aquaporin-4 (AQP4) antibody positive.
Neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD) is an unpredictable autoimmune disease. The condition is caused by inflammation in the central nervous system, which is made up of the optic nerve, brain stem and spinal cord. Without treatment, continued inflammation can lead to severe attacks that can result in permanent disability.
Uplizna is proven to reduce relapses that may lead to permanent disability.
