  Purpose
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.

Condition Intervention Phase
Hypogammaglobulinemia Drug: IVIG-L Phase 2 Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Kinetics, Efficacy and Safety of IVIG-L (Human Normal Intravenous Immunoglobulin for Intravenous Use) in Hypogammaglobulinemia Patients

Further study details as provided by Sanquin:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • 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 Measures:
  • To compare the IgG trough level
  • To compare dosage and treatment intervals

Estimated Enrollment: 15
Study Start Date: May 2001
Study Completion Date: December 2004
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.
