WARNING: ACUTE RENAL DYSFUNCTION and ACUTE RENAL FAILURE
Use of Immune Globulin Intravenous (IGIV) products, particularly those containing sucrose, have been reported to be associated with renal dysfunction, acute renal failure, osmotic nephropathy, and death.1 Patients at risk of acute renal failure include those with any degree of pre-existing renal insufficiency, diabetes mellitus, advanced age (above 65 years of age), volume depletion, sepsis, paraproteinemia, or receiving known nephrotoxic drugs (see
Warnings and Precautions [5.2]
). Gammaplex does not contain sucrose.
For patients at risk of renal dysfunction or failure, administer Gammaplex at the minimum infusion rate practicable (see
Dosage and Administration [2.3], Warnings and Precautions [5.2]
Gammaplex is a ready to use sterile solution of polyclonal human Immunoglobulin G for IV administration.
Gammaplex is an Immune Globulin Intravenous (Human), 5% Liquid indicated for the replacement therapy of primary humoral immunodeficiency (PI). This includes, but is not limited to, the humoral immune defect in common variable immunodeficiency, X-linked agammaglobulinemia, congenital agammaglobulinemia, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome, and severe combined immunodeficiencies.

Clinical Trials Related to Gammaplex (Human Immunoglobulin G)
A Study to Find How Safe and Effective GAMMAPLEX® is in Subjects With Chronic Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP) [Completed]
To determine if GAMMAPLEX raises the platelet count of subjects with chronic ITP to a
threshold of 50 x 109/L, similar to that of published response >60%. Also to assess the
safety of GAMMAPLEX and determine if platelet counts are maintained at 50 x 109/L in
subjects with chronic ITP for.
Efficacy, Safety and Pharmacokinetics of Gammaplex in Primary Immunodeficiency Diseases. [Completed]
The main objective of this study is to see if GAMMAPLEX is efficacious with respect to Food
and Drug Administration (FDA) minimal requirements (no more than 1 serious, acute, bacterial
infection per subject per year) in subjects with Primary Immunodeficiency Diseases (PID).
The secondary objectives are to assess the safety and tolerability of GAMMAPLEX and to
determine if GAMMAPLEX has a pharmacokinetic (PK) profile comparable with that of intact
Immunoglobulin G (IgG) in subjects with PID.
A Study to Find Out How Safe and Effective Gammaplex® is in Young People With Primary Immunodeficiency [Completed]
The main objective is to determine the efficacy of Gammaplex by measuring the number of
serious acute bacterial infections during treatment with Gammaplex over a 12 month period.
The secondary objectives are to assess the safety and tolerability of Gammaplex and to
compare the data collected from adult subjects with PID from the GMX01 study
Trial of the Efficacy of Intravenous Immunoglobulin for Treating Women With Unexplained Secondary Recurrent Miscarriage [Completed]
The investigators want to test whether infusions of intravenous immunoglobulin - a blood
product known to modify immune responses - in early pregnancy will increase the chance of a
subsequent live birth in women with three or more miscarriages after a birth and a total of
at least four miscarriages. This will be done in a trial where 82 patients will be randomly
allocated to infusions with intravenous immunoglobulin or placebo during pregnancy.
An Open-Label Study to Evaluate the Efficacy of High-Dose Gammaplex in Children on the Autism Spectrum [Active, not recruiting]
If autism is the consequence of a chronic inflammatory process preventing the infant brain
from forming the proper neural connections, then treatment that reduces inflammation might
have a positive impact on autism. IGIV treatment has been known to suppress inflammation
and has been used in the treatment of inflammatory conditions and autoimmune diseases.
