Best IVIG out there?

Recommended Posts

We are considering IVIG for our DS - 8 years old and 75 lbs. Are all IVIG brands created equal? Are some "purer" than others (in terms of contaminants and such)? I recall reading a post where someone compared the different IVIGs but cannot seem to find it again.


Can someone help us understand the different options out there? How did you make your choice?

When our doc recommended the treatment, I did not understand at first that there are different medicines and different protocols for the IVig to treat PANDAS. We just went along with the doctor and I am so glad that the treatment for our DD included the same medicine and protocol that was being followed in the NIH study. She received a 2 day long IVig of Gamunex-C. Once. We are hoping that is all she will ever have to have. She had the procedure one year ago and is doing well. Good luck with your son.
