What is IVIg?

Immunoglobulins are proteins produced by the immune system (the body’s own defence system) that help to fight infection. Intravenous immunoglobulin, or IVIg, can dampen down some inflammatory diseases that involve the immune system.

IVIg is a blood product that combines immunoglobulins from several donors. The donors will have been screened to make sure that they have no serious diseases that can be passed on, for example hepatitis B, hepatitis C and HIV.
