Human normal immunoglobulin (IVIg)
The active ingredient of Intratect is human immunoglobulin for intravenous administration. Intratect contains 50 g/l or 100 g/l of human normal immunoglobulin, of which at least 96 % is immunoglobulin G (IgG).
Intratect is used in adults and in children and adolescents (0-18 years) without sufficient antibodies as replacement therapy in:
- Patients who have been deficient in antibodies since birth (primary immunodeficiency syndromes).
- Patients with proven specific antibody deficiency or an IgG level of 4 g/l who suffer from severe or recurrent infections and ineffective antimicrobial treatment with antibody deficiency (secondary immunodeficiency syndromes).
Intratect is also used in adults and in children and adolescents (0-18 years) for the treatment of inflammatory diseases (immunomodulation), such as:
- Primary immune thrombocytopenia (ITP, in which the patient has a decreased number of platelets), when the patient is scheduled for surgery shortly or is at risk for bleeding.
- Guillain-Barré syndrome (a disease that damages the nerves and can cause generalized paralysis)
- Kawasaki disease (a disease in children that causes inflammation of multiple organs in the body and causes the arteries in the heart to dilate) along with acetylsalicylic acid.
- Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP); this is a chronic disease characterized by the inflammation of the peripheral nerves causing muscle weakness and/or numbness mainly in the legs and upper limbs and.
- Multifocal Motor Neuropathy (MMN); this is a rare disorder characterized by slowly progressive asymmetric weakness of the limbs without sensory loss.
