This summer’s GBS-CIDP Annual Special Medical Issue has an article on page 4 entitled “CIDP Treatment Update” by Gareth J. Perry, M.D.

Regarding Plasma Exchange, he summed up with this statement: “The cost is comparable to IVIg but because of the inconvenience we regard PLEX as third line treatment and rarely use it.”

Oh, by the way- the first line treatment in this article? Corticosteroid treatment.
