  Purpose

This non-interventional, epidemiological study assesses long-term outcomes in subjects receiving immunoglobulins (IgG) for any treatment purpose, irrespective of the regimen prescribed by the treating physician, under routine clinical conditions among at least 550 subjects in Germany.

Long-term outcome data are collected on patient characteristics in the various indications, drug utilization of intravenous and subcutaneous IgG (e.g. treatment and dosing patterns), effectiveness (i.e. number of infections), tolerability, health related quality of life, and economic variables (number of hospitalizations, sick-leave days etc.) with the possibility to estimate direct costs.


Condition Intervention
Primary Immunodeficiency (PID)
Secondary Immunodeficiency (SID)
Neurological Autoimmune Disease
Other: Immunoglobulin G (IgG)

Study Type: Observational [Patient Registry]
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Target Follow-Up Duration: 2 Years
Official Title: An Open, Uncontrolled, Non-interventional Observational Cohort Outcome Study of Immunoglobulins in 3 Indications: Primary and Secondary Immunodeficiencies and Neurological Auto-immune Diseases

Further study details as provided by Technische Universität Dresden:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Immunoglobulin IgG dosage [ Time Frame: up to 54 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Dosage of immunoglobulins (IgG); frequency of IgG administrations; days of treatment with IgG; duration of infusion of IgG.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Infection rate [ Time Frame: up to 54 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

    For immunodeficiencies (primary PID and secondary SID):

    frequency of infections; degree of severity of infections (SBIs); duration of antibiotic treatment; necessity of antibiotic treatment.


  • Neurological and muscular function (for neurological auto-immune diseases only) [ Time Frame: up to 54 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Grip strength (dynamometer) Electrophysiology (EMG, ENG); Inflammatory Neuropathy Cause and Treatment (INCAT) disability score; EDSS, annual relapse rate; Myasthenia Score.

  • Duration of manifest auto-immune disease within the follow-up period(for neurological auto-immune diseases only). [ Time Frame: up to 54 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Health-related quality of life [ Time Frame: up to 54 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Pharmacoeconomic parameters [ Time Frame: up to 54 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Number of sick-leave days Number of medical visits Days of hospitalisation due to infections or due to disability or loss of function Degree of disability


Estimated Enrollment: 704
Study Start Date: July 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: April 2016
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Patient treated with any IgG
Any marketed SC or IV IgG can be documented
Other: Immunoglobulin G (IgG)
Not applicable. All interventions are at the discretion of the investigator. All marketed IgG formulations can be documented.

Detailed Description:

In view of the broad range of indications in immunodeficiency and immunomodulation, it is of interest to document the use of IgG under the conditions of everyday practice and to analyze the endpoints (outcomes). A prospective cohort study such as this is an important evidence source for such rare diseases as those mentioned above. The aim of this outcome study is to fill the gap of the lack of long-term data in these rare diseases treated with IgG.

  Eligibility

Exclusion Criteria:

  • None
