Brief Summary:
  • This is the first study, that we are aware of, that will evaluate the efficacy of IgIV in patients with IgG subclass deficiency.
  • Will provide data for further collaboration in extending study to involve other immunological centers in the United States to study patients with similar disease.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
IgG Deficiency Infections Drug: IV Gamunex 10% Phase 2

Detailed Description:
*10 consenting adults (18 or older) will receive IgIV (Gamunex 10%) monthly at a dose of 400mg/kg body weight IV at 3ml/minute. Comprehensive labs will be monitored at each visit, as well as clinical eval, plus patients will complete a questionnaire each time. There is also a 3 month follow-up visit after completion of therapy. Specific xrays will be done at the beginning and with the last treatment.
