Suppression of serum immunoglobulin G for periods ranging from days to weeks following thermal injury may enhance the risk of infection in burn patients. In an initial trial, we attempted to determine whether intravenous pulses of Immunoglobulin G (IgG) will establish and maintain normal serum IgG concentrations in this interval. The levels of endogeneous serum IgG in eight control patients, mean total burn size 45 percent body surface area (no IgG infusions), were measured by radial… CONTINUE READING
