Experimental: Immune Globulin Intravenous
IVIG used in the trial is the GAMUNEX brand, at doses up through 800 mg/kg in Phase 1 and at 400mg/kg in Phase 2.

Other Name: GAMUNEX (Talecris Biotherapeutics)
Placebo Comparator: Normal saline
An equivalent volume (weight-based)of normal saline
Other: Normal saline
A single dose of normal saline administered within 24 hours of hospital admission for uncomplicated pain crisis.
Other Name: Placebo
