      [QUOTE= (name redacted)]…All brands except Gamunex are processed with glucose, while Gamunex is processed with amino acids. [/QUOTE]

      Recently, in another thread someone gave us the statement above. Hmmmm?

      I tried to research IVIG ‘processing’ briefly. I stopped when I found this site:

      Focus on the lead following www. ASHP = the American Society of Health-Systems Pharmacists. Probably a reputable group, couldn’t say for sure though. Scroll down the page to IVIG Tools #4. On the way scrolling down see if any other documents interest you.

      Here’s the thing, they have this awesome spreadsheet at:

      Which as it’s name implies is a side-by-side comparison of IVIG products. It’s a .pdf file from Dec 2007. Overall, the data should still be valid.

      Shucks, I can’t copy it, or any part of it. Bottomline?:

      Gammunex, Gammagard Liquid 10% and Privegen 10% all [I]CONTAIN [/I]0% sugar.

      Lot’s more data there. Recommend ya’all look it over.
