Managing Adverse Events with Immunoglobulin Therapy
Recorded Thursday, April 17, 2014

Immunoglobulin (Ig) therapy has a variety of clinical indications, with over 160 applications documented in published literature. While currently approved Ig products have been found to be of similar efficacy, the tolerability profile can differ product to product, and patient to patient. Adverse events are a common occurrence with Ig administration, and can range from frequent mild and moderate reactions, to rare, serious and life-threatening. Understanding the adverse event profile of Ig therapy, and learning prevention and mitigation strategies is a critical part of managing Ig therapy in patients.
