Likely Costs

April 23, 2011 at 1:58 pm

I was told by one of the people associated with FFF Enterprises four years ago that the wholesale price of Carimune NF, made by the same company as Privigen, was approximately $75/g, with a higher price to the hospital, probably something near $150/g. I don’t know how Privigen and Carimune differ, but I would not expect there to be more than a 20% variation. I know from Baxter’s website that the current list price of their Gammaguard is $129/g in a 10 g vial.

My guess is that the hospital paid something near $140/g for the IVIg, unless they are part of a big system that deals directly with the manufacturer.

Godspeed in finding a way to deal with the costs,
