The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the utility of measuring outcomes in 5% treatment nave Intravenous Immunoglobulin (IVIg) Primary Immunodeficiency Disease (PIDD) patients using infusion nurse and patient measured physical, quality of life (QOL), respiratory, and disability assessments using CareExchange in the home setting.

Clinical Details

Official title: Monitoring of 5% Treatment Nave Intravenous Immunoglobulin (IVIg) Primary Immunodeficiency Disease (PIDD) Patients Using the CareExchange System: A Pilot Study Using 5% Gammaplex IVIg in the Home Setting

Study design: Observational Model: Cohort, Time Perspective: Prospective

Primary outcome: Analysis of collected data captured in CareExchange will demonstrate the ability to show and track changes in outcome data in 5% treatment naïve IVIg PIDD patients in the home setting.

Secondary outcome:

Evaluate the profile physician usage (dose and timing) with Gammaplex®.

Evaluate physician feedback to having real-time access to 5% treatment naïve IVIg PIDD data captured during home infusions.

Evaluate the safety profile of using a 5% treatment naïve IVIg in PIDD patients in the home setting.

Demonstration of response rate for those receiving IVIg therapies.

Demonstration of changes in outcomes as a result of changes made in IVIg dose and frequency during study participation.

Demonstration of measured variables within patients who receive IVIg therapies.

Evaluate the effectiveness of whether CareExchange leads to better QOLs and overall patient reported outcomes.

Other potential impacts on change in outcomes across patient demographics (age, sex, race, ethnicity, etc.).
