Immunoglobulin (Ig) replacement therapy, given as regular infusions of pooled human Ig, is the recognized treatment of humoral immunodeficiencies characterized by hypogammaglobulinemia and impaired antibody responses. It is a safe, effective therapy when delivered by nurses who have been educated to oversee and/or provide these infusions. Guidelines for administration have been developed by the Immune Deficiency Foundation Nurse Advisory Committee to provide a framework and guidance to those nurses administering this therapy.
