premature death. Soliris is the first and only approved safe and
effective treatment for pediatric and adult patients with aHUS. In two

blood clots in small blood vessels throughout the body) and improved
renal function in both pediatric and adult patients with aHUS.1,2
The data were presented at Kidney Week 2013, the annual meeting of the
