Condition(s) targeted: Hypogammaglobulinemia

Intervention: IVIG-L (Drug)

Phase: Phase 2/Phase 3

Status: Completed

Sponsored by: Sanquin

Official(s) and/or principal investigator(s):

Summary

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.

Clinical Details

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

Primary outcome:

Kinetics of IVIG-L in patients with hypogammaglobulinemia

Efficacy of IVIG-L in patients with hypogammaglobulinemia

Safety of IVIG-L in patients with hypogammaglobulinemia

Secondary outcome:

To compare the IgG trough level

To compare dosage and treatment intervals

Detailed description: 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.
