It could have possibly done so. Its design would have negated the energy of the ascended beings, effectively cancelling out their life energy, something not too dissimilar to the Attero device.
I have a theory, while both were in a eternal battle, could there be a possible conclusion.
Adria wanted to wipe out Oma Desala and Anubis after she took on the mantle of the Ori as both of them were a threat to her?
But knowning Oma I think when Adria were about to attack Oma threw Anubis at Adria to escape with her life.
