IVIG (Privigen) Reactions


We've seen a noticeable increase in reactions to IVIG, from patients who have previously tolerated it. We seem to have identified one lot number that has been in common for all but one of them. We've contacted the manufacturer about it, but I was curious if anyone else has gotten reports of similar increases?
