HOW DO ENDOCRINE MONOCLONAL ANTIBODIES WORK?
These antibodies treat hypophosphatemia caused due to excess activity of a phosphaturic hormone fibroblast growth factor-23 (FGF23). FGF23 is a bone-derived hormone that regulates the phosphate level in the body. Phosphate is responsible for vitamin D production in the body. FGF23 signals the kidney to stop reabsorbing phosphate into the bloodstream when it exceeds its level in the body.
Endocrine monoclonal antibodies block the overactivity of FGF23, restoring phosphate reabsorption and vitamin D production.
