Human Ig, replenishing the deficit of antibodies, reduces the risk of infections in patients with primary and secondary immunodeficiency.

Congenital immunodeficiency conditions (congenital complete or partial immunodeficiency, variational immunodeficiency, severe combined immunodeficiency, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome);
idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (especially acute forms in children).

Acquired immunodeficiency (chronic lymphocytic leukemia, AIDS in children, bone marrow transplantation and other types of transplantation);
Kawasaki syndrome (as an adjunct to acetylsalicylic acid therapy); prevention and treatment of infectious diseases.
In / in the drip.
Before administration, the drug should be warmed to room temperature or body temperature. You can enter only a clear solution.

The initial infusion rate is 30 cap / min (1.65 ml / min), after 10 min the rate is increased to 40 cap / min (2.2 ml / min).

Substitution therapy for primary and secondary immunodeficiencies (including children with AIDS): 0.1-0.4 g / kg at intervals of 1 month until the level of IgG increases.
In the absence of a sufficient increase in IgG levels or an excessively rapid decrease in the index, the dose is increased to 0.8 g / kg or the intervals between administrations are shortened.

Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura is 0.8-1 g / kg (if necessary, repeat for 2 or 3 days) or 0.4 g / kg for 2-5 days.
If necessary, repeat the course.

Allogeneic bone marrow transplantation - 0.5 g / kg for 7 days.
