The kinetics, efficacy and safety of a liquid intravenous immunoglobulin product, IVIG-L,
were studied in patients with hypogammaglobulinemia, who are regularly treated with
intravenous immunoglobulin substitution therapy.
Official title: Kinetics, Efficacy and Safety of IVIG-L (Human Normal Intravenous Immunoglobulin for Intravenous Use) in Hypogammaglobulinemia Patients
Study design: Treatment, Non-Randomized, Open Label, Historical Control, Single Group Assignment, Safety/Efficacy Study
Kinetics of IVIG-L in patients with hypogammaglobulinemia
Efficacy of IVIG-L in patients with hypogammaglobulinemia
Safety of IVIG-L in patients with hypogammaglobulinemia
To compare the IgG trough level
To compare dosage and treatment intervals
Sanquin has developed, in cooperation with the Finnish Red Cross Blood Transfusion Service
(FRCBTS), a liquid intravenous immunoglobulin product, IVIG-L. The liquid formulation of
intravenous immunoglobulin simplifies the infusion, eliminates possible mistakes in the
reconstitution with water for injections and reduces the space requirements in storage.
In addition to the donor selection and donor screening, several viral safety steps have been
included into the production process.
In this clinical trial, the efficacy and safety of IVIG-L in patients with
hypogammaglobulinemia, who are regularly treated with intravenous immunoglobulin substitution
therapy, will be studied. IVIG-L will also be studied in patients with chronic ITP (KB98001).
Data from both studies will be used for an application for marketing authorisation in Finland
and the Netherlands.
