Eculizumab is prescribed to patients who have a type of anemia called paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria. This type of anemia causes red blood cells to break down in the body so that cells don’t get enough oxygen. This medication is injected into the body in order to block the part of the immune system that is causing red blood cells to break down.
