Twenty-seven lots of human immune globulin for intravenous use (IGIV) from seven different producers, including one hyperimmune preparation, were examined for immunologic reactivity and opsonic and protective activity against Pseudomonas aeruginosa. All IGIVs contained hemagglutinating antibodies to seven immunotype-specific lipopolysaccharides of P. aeruginosa (geometric mean titer +/- SE, 14 +/- 3 for nonhyperimmune preparations and 420 for the hyperimmune product) and to exotoxin A (77… CONTINUE READING
