INTRODUCTION

IVIGLOB EX 5GM contains Human normal immunoglobin which belongs to the group of medicines called Immunoglobins. It supplements our body with sufficient antibodies (agents which are responsible for providing immunity) that are required to fight against various infections.

It is primarily used in patients with a poor immune system and in patients who cannot produce enough antibodies on their own. It can also be used to treat various inflammatory auto-immune disorders in both adults and in children (including new-borns and infants).

Human Normal Immunoglobulin contains antibodies (IgG) derived from the blood of healthy donors. Following administration, it supports our immune system by supplementing our body with sufficient antibodies that are required to fight against various infections. It can also modulate the functions of immune system in case of autoimmune disorders.

Do not receive IVIGLOB EX 5GM if you are allergic to immunoglobulins or if you are deficient in a type of immunoglobulin called IgA. You must also inform your doctor if you have any untreated infections or any problems in your blood vessels.

Before receiving IVIGLOB EX 5GM inform your doctor if you have diabetes, kidney, or heart problems or if you are severely dehydrated as a precaution. IVIGLOB EX 5GM should be used in pregnant and breastfeeding women only if it is considered necessary by the physician.

Inform your doctor immediately if you experience severe headache with flushing, muscle pain, dizziness, chills, wheezing or nausea while receiving IVIGLOB EX 5GM.
