IgG1 allows ELOCTATE to extend its half-life by binding to the neonatal Fc receptor1
IgG1 is a naturally occurring protein that has anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory properties1-3
The molecular mechanism behind the effects achieved by ELOCTATE
yet fully understood, including the interaction with cellular Fc receptors that
ELOCTATE may interact with3
Jonathan embodies drive and ambition. That’s why he worked with his doctor to switch to ELOCTATE. Jonathan was interested in ELOCTATE because of the extended half-life and the possibility of an infusion schedule of up to every 5 days. He went from infusing every other day on his previous, standard half-life factor to infusing every 4 days on ELOCTATE.1
