Very Little Risk of Infection From IVIG
May 31, 2016
IVIG is one of the principal treatments for CIDP Neuropathy and the infusion carries very little risk of infection.
IVIG goes through several steps to make sure it is safe and will not cause infection:
- All people who give blood are screened to find out if they might have an infection or other disease.
- All blood is tested for serious infections, such as the AIDS virus and hepatitis.
- IVIG is treated to kill most viruses and bacteria before it is given to patients.
