United Kingdom

Alexion is focused on serving patients and families affected by rare diseases by delivering innovative, life-changing therapies. In 2007, Alexion began operations in the UK to serve patients locally. Our approach to serving patients is driven by education and a passion for understanding and meeting the unique needs of patients and families suffering from rare diseases. We are driven because we know people's lives depend on our work.
In the UK, Alexion has therapies available for the treatment of patients with paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH), atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome (aHUS), pediatric onset hypophosphatasia (HPP), and lysosomal acid lipase deficiency (LAL-D).
