Inhibition of complement activation by pexelizumab resulted in a decreased mortality at 180 days among 218 patients who underwent combined aortic valve replacement and coronary artery bypass grafting surgery. Additional studies are warranted to confirm this decrease in mortality with pexelizumab in combined aortic valve replacement and coronary artery bypass grafting procedures.
