Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change From Baseline In Myasthenia Gravis-Activities Of Daily Living (MG-ADL) Total Score At Week 26 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 26 ]
    To assess the efficacy of ravulizumab compared with placebo in the treatment of gMG based on the improvement in the MG-ADL profile.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change From Baseline In The Quantitative Myasthenia Gravis (QMG) Total Score At Week 26 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 26 ]
    To assess the efficacy of ravulizumab compared with placebo in the treatment of gMG based on the improvement in the QMG total score.
