RUCONEST addresses the root cause of the attack 7,8

Powerful action upstream AND at multiple points in the inflammatory cascade 7,8

Immunotherapy. 2015;7(7):739-752; Kaplan AP, Joseph K, Silverberg M. Pathways for bradykinin formation and inflammatory disease. J Allergy Clin Immunol. 2002;109(2):195-209.

Acute HAE attacks develop when there is a deficiency of the C1-INH protein, which causes the overproduction of bradykinin that leads to acute swelling. 7,8

RUCONEST raised functional C1-INH levels to normal in 94% of patients 9
