Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Octagam 5%
Primary Immune Deficiency Syndrome patients receiving Octagam 5% by infusion who have been treated with a marketed IVIG product for at least 6 months.
Biological: Octagam 5%
Intravenous immunoglobulin 5%
Other marketed IVIG product

Detailed Description:

This Post Marketing Study is a prospective, 2-armed, multicenter, non-interventional study. Patients will either be administered the brand of IGIV therapy ordered by their prescribing physician, or for patients issued unspecified or generic prescriptions of IGIV therapy, octagam® 5% or another brand of IGIV therapy will be provided by the Investigator according to federal, state and local regulations and good clinical practice (GCP) guidelines.

The primary objective is to assess and evaluate the safety profile of octagam® 5% during or after administration under routine clinical use for all labeled indications, with a special emphasis on the occurrence of TEEs. The incidence of TEEs in patients receiving octagam® 5% will be compared with the incidence rate in a matching concurrent control group of patients receiving other IGIVs for routine clinical use.


Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample

  1. Male and female patients aged 18 years.
  2. Patients with confirmed diagnosis of Primary Humoral Immunodeficiency (PI) as stated by the World Health Organization and requiring immunoglobulinreplacement therapy due to hypogammaglobulinemia or agammaglobulinemia.
  3. Patients on regular treatment (every 3 to 4 weeks) with low dose IGIV (1 g/kg) for a period of at least 6 months without changing the brand.
