This study focuses on pregnant women (between 23 and 30 weeks) who have been diagnosed with preeclampsia. The purpose of the study is to determine whether an investigational drug called eculizumab is an effective treatment for preeclampsia. Specifically, researchers will evaluate whether treatment with eculizumab prolongs pregnancy in women with preterm preeclampsia, compared to a group of women (historical control group) with preterm preeclampsia who did not receive eculizumab.
Eculizumab is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of certain blood disorders and has been used in pregnant women, but it is not approved by the FDA for the treatment of preeclampsia.
