      By the way, > means greater than.

      I was searching for a comparison of IVIG contents as they relate to adverse events. Sugar content versus diabetes, for example.

      Although the studied disease is neither gbs nor cidp, perhaps the results are still relevant.

      “…This study confirms anecdotal reports that a high level of immunoglobulin A in intravenous immunoglobulin is less well tolerated by children and provides evidence that product choice is important in pediatrics…”

      My point is that If your child receives IVIG or, is going to, ask your doctor about the IgA level in the product.


      If you go to the site you will find a Published 2010 date.
