Flebogamma® DIF has proven tolerability and is an efficacious therapeutic option for treating patients with primary immune deficiency (PID)
Proven efficacy in PID1,2
Flebogamma® DIF has demonstrated efficacy in PID with a rate of serious bacterial infections/patient/year well below the acceptance criterion for IVIG effectiveness of ≤1.0 (FDA standard)1,2
Proven tolerability in PID1,2
In the clinical trial of Flebogamma® DIF 5% in PID, more than 700 infusions were administered1
Approximately 10% of these infusions were associated with adverse events (AEs); the majority of them were mild to moderate in intensity and resolved in the physician's office1
In the clinical trial of Flebogamma® DIF 10% in PID, more than 600 infusions were administered2. The majority of AEs suspected to be treatment-related were graded as mild to moderate in intensity2
In patients with risk factors, tolerability is particularly important
In a recent prospective study, which included patients with immunodeficiency, autoimmune disease and bone marrow transplant (BMT), both Flebogamma® DIF 5% and 10% were well tolerated3
Frequency of infusions with potentially treatment-related AEs with Flebogamma® DIF 5% was low (2.2%) and no headaches were reported3
Percentage and type of Flebogamma® DIF 10% AEs reported in this study fell well within the ranges of AEs reported in other IVIG clinical studies3
Flebogamma® DIF 5% may be an appropriate choice for many of your patients including those who cannot tolerate a 10% IVIG3
