- Subcutaneous (SubQ) treatment is self-administered at home, once a week.1
- Before you start infusing yourself at home, a nurse will train you to make sure you know what you're doing and feel comfortable doing it.
- GAMMAGARD LIQUID treatment is administered subcutaneously, which means under your skin, through 1 or more small needles inserted in the upper arms, abdomen, thighs, or lower back.
- The number of sites depends on your dose. Ensure sites are at least 2 inches apart.
- In the clinical study (N=49) of SubQ administration of GAMMAGARD LIQUID, weekly infusion times ranged from 0.8 to 2.3 hours (the weekly median infusion time was 1.2 hours). Between 2 and 10 infusion sites were needed.1
- The number of infusion sites should be limited to 8.1
