AstraZeneca PLC said Friday that its Ultomiris drug has been approved in the European Union for the treatment of adults with the rare disease generalized myasthenia gravis.

The Anglo-Swedish pharma giant said that Ultomiris may reduce treatment burden with dosing every eight weeks, it said, adding that the drug also proved an improvement in activities of daily living.

Generalized myasthenia gravis is a rare autoimmune neuromuscular disease that leads to a loss of muscle function and severe weakness, AstraZeneca said.
