PANZYGA is in a class of medicine called intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg). PANZYGA is a liquid medicine for infusion that contains immunoglobulin G (IgG).
How is PANZYGA made?
PANZYGA is made from healthy human plasma.
Ig therapy like PANZYGA is made from human plasma, which is collected from healthy donors and may contain infectious agents. That's why Ig therapy is made under FDA guidelines, which include:
- Screening plasma donors for certain viruses and other diseases
- Testing the collected plasma to help ensure that it is virus and disease free
- Helping ensure certain viruses are inactivated or removed when PANZYGA is manufactured
PANZYGA is FDA approved to treat people with CIDP, PI, or cITP.
- For adults with CIDP, PANZYGA may help improve arm and leg strength and mobility
- For people 2 years of age and older with PI, PANZYGA helps replace antibodies that are missing from the immune system, which may help reduce the risk of infection
- For adults with cITP, PANZYGA helps boost platelet count, which may help control and prevent bleeding
PANZYGA is given as an infusion through a needle in a vein and is administered by a healthcare provider.
Your infusion will start at a slow rate. It may gradually increase if you tolerate it well. Your healthcare provider will monitor you during your infusion. They will be looking for signs of infusion reactions. These reactions can include headache, abdominal pain, fever, nausea, fatigue, vomiting, dizziness, and anemia. They may stop your PANZYGA treatment if you experience a reaction. Slowing or stopping the infusion may help these reactions to lessen or go away.
The infusion time for PANZYGA varies based on the condition (CIDP, PI, or cITP) being treated and the rate of infusion.
