PANTHERx Selected by UCB as Exclusive Specialty Pharmacy for ZILBRYSQ

UCB, a global biopharmaceutical company, announced that ZILBRYSQ® (zilucoplan) is now available in the U.S. for the treatment of generalized myasthenia gravis (gMG) in adult patients who are anti-acetylcholine receptor (AChR) antibody positive.

ZILBRYSQ was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on October 17, 2023. ZILBRYSQ is available by prescription as a ready-to-use pre-filled syringe that is a once-daily administration.

Zilbrysq is available through the specialty pharmacy PANTHERx Rare Pharmacy and through a Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS) program because of the risk of serious meningococcal infections.

PANTHERx® Rare was selected in August 2023 by UCB as a limited distribution partner to provide RYSTIGGO® (rozanolixizumab-noli), the first and only FDA-approved targeted treatment for both anti- acetylcholine receptor (AChR)  anti- muscle-specific tyrosine kinase (MuSK) antibody positive adult patients with generalized myasthenia gravis (gMG).
