Immunoglobulin

You may have a condition that needs treatment with immunoglobulin. Immunoglobulins are antibodies found in plasma. They are made by the body’s immune system to fight infection and disease.

There are two ways you can receive immunoglobulin medication. You will need to discuss with your doctor which is the most suitable for you.

  • Intravenous (IV) by way of a needle into a vein, or
  • Subcutaneous (SC) where a needle is inserted under the skin. This method is for self-administration outside the hospital and is not suitable for everyone
