Privigen IVIg Infusion Therapy

WHAT CONDITIONS DOES PRIVIGEN TREAT?

Privigen is an intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg) drug that is used to treat primary immunodeficiency (PI) disease, chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) in adults, and chronic immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) in people 15 years and older.

HOW DOES PRIVIGEN WORK?

Privigen contains immunoglobulin G (IgG), the main type of antibody made by the immune system. Privigen helps protect the health of people with PI by supplying their immune systems with IgG antibodies to help prevent infections. Privigen can also help improve motor function in adults with CIDP. For people 15 years and older with chronic ITP, Privigen can raise platelet counts to help prevent bleeding.

HOW IS PRIVIGEN ADMINISTERED?

A Privigen IVIg infusion is administered intravenously once every 3 to 4 weeks. The dose depends on age and body weight.
