IVIG (immunoglobulin therapy)
IVIG therapy is used to treat patients with antibody deficiencies. This includes patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), osteoarthritis, lupus, gout, scleroderma, Sjogren’s syndrome, primary humoral immunodeficiency disease (PIDD), primary immunodeficiency (PI), and spondyloarthropathies, on people two years of age and older.
For patients who are at a higher risk of blood clots, IVIG should be administered at the lowest infusion rate practicable. Patients should also be well hydrated prior to starting treatment.
Note: Please speak with your healthcare provider for more information if you think this therapy might be right for you.
