In a study, patients with primary immunodeficiency disorders averaged 0.08 acute serious bacterial infections per year with Privigen—and the rate of other bacterial infections per year with Privigen was 3.55
In 2 separate studies, 61% and 73% of patients with CIDP responded to Privigen treatment. Almost all patients who responded did so after 1 or 2 maintenance treatments*
*At weeks 4 and 7.
In a study in 80.7% of patients with ITP, platelet count increased 150% within 7 days of taking Privigen; platelet counts increased beginning the day after the first infusion and remained high for at least 8.8 days in 75% of patients
Privigen IVIg is an antibody therapy that contains immunoglobulin G (IgG).
Your doctor may refer to your IgG treatment as “Ig,” “intravenous Ig,” or “IVIg.”
CSL Behring, the maker of Privigen, has a heritage of safety and excellence in therapies derived from plasma (part of the blood) spanning over 65 years. Our quality controls are among the most rigorous in the business, and our products meet exacting standards.
The process used to make Privigen includes a 3-step virus inactivation/removal process:
Proline is a naturally occurring amino acid that is made by the body and is found in certain foods. Proline keeps the immunoglobulin stable, even at room temperature. You don't need to refrigerate Privigen, for greater convenience.
People with hyperprolinemia should not use Privigen.
Privigen is a ready-to-use liquid, which saves time, unlike IVIg products that come as powders that need to be mixed before use.
Privigen is stored at room temperature, so it’s already ready for use.
Privigen comes in a glass bottle and is given through a needle into a vein, or “intravenously.” It is administered by a nurse or doctor—whether you’re at a hospital, clinic, physician’s office, or in your home.
Proline is a naturally occurring amino acid. It can be made by the body and is found in certain foods in a normal, healthy diet.
Treatment with Privigen might not be possible if your doctor determines that you have hyperprolinemia (too much proline in the blood).
An antibody is an essential part of the immune system that identifies and destroys disease-causing bacteria or viruses. IgG, found in Privigen, is the main type of antibody made by the immune system.
