The increase in platelets in patients with immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) by intravenous administration of human immunoglobulin concentrates (IVIG) reflects a therapeutic immunomodulatory intervention targeted at the disturbed immune response in many inflammatory and autoimmune disorders. These immunoglobulin concentrates contain large numbers of antibodies as well as trace levels of various other immunologically active molecules. Clinical and laboratory studies have documented various… CONTINUE READING
