      I was reading an article on ”Science” about how researchers at Rockefeller’s Laboratory of Molecular Genetics and Immunology on why IgG causes these diseases in our bodies and yet IVIG (IgG) works well in ”Inflammatory Central Neurological” diseases and they discovered a sugar molecule ”Sialic Acid” in the IVIG is what helps in this. So they said this should lead to better drugs for these diseases in the future.

      Maybe someone can post the article and/or link so others can read and theres more than just what i said but thats the jest of it …
