abstract

  • Since the 1950s, intramuscular gammaglobulin preparations have been used for antibody replacement in patients with immune deficiency syndromes. The authors of this article discuss newer intravenous formulations which have expanded the role of IgG preparations from simple antibody replacement to therapeutic use in high doses as an immune suppressant and an autoimmune modulator.
