hydropros IVIG Therapy
What is IVIG or Intravenous Immunoglobulin? IVIG, also called gamma globulin or antibodies, is a highly purified blood product preparation that is derived from large pools of plasma donors. Plasma from approximately 1,000 to 10,000 persons is present in each unit or “lot” of IVIG therapy. While this is a blood product, IVIG available in the United States is purified and carefully screened to be free of all known transmissible diseases, including HIV, hepatitis, malaria, syphilis and many, many others. IVIG therapy is used to treat a variety of neurological and neuromuscular autoimmune disorders that affect the central nervous
system, peripheral nerves, neuromuscular junction and muscles.
The benefits of IVIG Therapy
The underlying problem in all autoimmune diseases is often similar. One part of your immune system has decided to attack part of your body, instead of defending your body from bacteria and viruses. While the cause of this damage is unknown, IVIG contains antibodies which are believed to block this attack.
Some of the most common neurological autoimmune diseases treated with IVIG therapy in the PNA Infusion Center include: Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (CIDP); Multiple Sclerosis (MS); Myasthenia Gravis (MG); Multifocal
Motor Neuropathy (MMN); Multifocal Acquired Sensory and Motor Neuropathy (MADSAM); Dermatomyositis, and Polymyositis.
