Gamma globulin in secondary antibody deficiency syndrome

Fortschritte der Medizin
G Hartwich


12 patients with secondary antibody deficiency syndrome received a new gammaglobulin compound intravenously (lyoph. SRK Sandoz). The drug was given in a 3% NaCl-solution once to four times. At the end of the infusion of 6 g gammaglobulin and after one week, serum levels were significantly higher. Gammaglobulin intravenously was well tolerated in all cases. Severe infections during the period of treatment were not observed.

Antibody Specificity

Antibodies produced by B cells are highly specific for antigen as a result of random gene recombination and somatic hypermutation and affinity maturation. As the main effector of the humoral immune system, antibodies can neutralize foreign cells. Find the latest research on antibody specificity here.
