Further study details as provided by Alexion Pharmaceuticals:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Acceptable safety (adverse events [AEs], labs, electrocardiograms [ECGs], vital signs)
  • Primary surrogate of efficacy endpoint is hemolysis measured by LDH area under the curve.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Hemolysis measured by the change of LDH from baseline;
  • Quality of Life
