GAMMAGARD LIQUID is the only IVIG in clinical trials shown to improve grip strength and reduce disability in MMN*

GAMMAGARD LIQUID is an antibody therapy that contains immunoglobulin G (IgG). The term Ig means antibodies, like the ones you have in your immune system to fight infections. However, with MMN, your body's immune system may mistakenly attack your motor nerves. Ig therapy infuses a specific type of antibody into your body to support a healthy immune system. Your doctor might also refer to GAMMAGARD LIQUID as an Ig treatment, intravenous Ig or IVIG.

*In a 60-week clinical study with 44 adults with MMN, GAMMAGARD LIQUID was shown to improve or maintain grip strength and reduce disability compared to placebo.

GAMMAGARD LIQUID is made from plasma donations

Learn what it takes to make GAMMAGARD LIQUID

How does human plasma become this unique IVIG? Watch this introduction to how GAMMAGARD LIQUID is made.

Before we get started let’s go through some important safety information. Gammagard Liquid (Immune Globulin Infusion [Human]) 10% is a ready-to-use liquid medicine that is given in a vein (intravenously) or under the skin (subcutaneously) to treat primary immunodeficiency (PI) in people 2 years and older and given in a vein to treat multifocal motor neuropathy (MMN) in adults. Gammagard Liquid can cause blood clots, decreased kidney function and kidney failure. Please see Important Safety Information in this video, and the accompanying Information for Patients, and discuss with your Healthcare Provider.

Want to see one of the world’s most precious assets?

No, it’s not a diamond, it’s not gold.

This is human plasma and it’s used to create immunoglobulin therapies, like Gammagard Liquid.

Pretty cool, huh?

But do you know how these therapies are made? Let me show you.

Precious things need to be handled with care. And this is no exception.

It’s not a process that can be rushed. No, No.

It’s a journey of dedication and care.

The process takes up to a year and follows rigorous quality and safety measures.

It begins with donor selection.

Potential donors are strictly screened before their plasma is collected and their donation is tested for viruses and infections.

Then, experts carefully remove the IgG antibodies that are needed to create the final product.

After this, they purify the IgG antibodies in several stages.

And, while donor screening and donation testing minimise the chances of viruses, three specialised steps clear any viruses that may still be there.

Immunoglobulin therapies are all produced in a similar way but their features are different.

Gammagard Liquid is designed with patient needs in mind.

Its specific characteristics make it suitable for a broad range of patients. For example, it doesn’t contain any added sugar or sodium, which may be important things to consider for patients who are watching their salt and sugar intake.

Looking good!

After a final inspection, Gammagard Liquid is shipped to the people it’s prescribed to.

GAMMAGARD LIQUID is a ready-to-use liquid medicine that is given in a vein (intravenously) or under the skin (subcutaneously) to treat primary immunodeficiency (PI) in people 2 years and older and given in a vein to treat multifocal motor neuropathy (MMN) in adults.


What is the most important information that I should know about GAMMAGARD LIQUID?

GAMMAGARD LIQUID can cause the following serious reactions:

Severe allergic reactions causing difficulty in breathing or skin rashes

Decreased kidney function or kidney failure

Blood clots in the heart, brain, lungs or elsewhere in the body

Severe headache, drowsiness, fever, painful eye movements, or nausea and vomiting

Dark colored urine, swelling, fatigue, or difficulty breathing

Who should not use GAMMAGARD LIQUID?

Do not use GAMMAGARD LIQUID if you:

Have had a severe allergic reaction to immune globulin or other blood products.

Have a condition called selective (or severe) immunoglobulin A (IgA) deficiency.

What should I avoid while taking GAMMAGARD LIQUID?

GAMMAGARD LIQUID can make vaccines (like measles/mumps/rubella or chickenpox vaccines) not work as well for you. Before you get any vaccines, tell your healthcare provider (HCP) that you take GAMMAGARD LIQUID.

Tell your HCP if you are pregnant, or plan to become pregnant, or if you are nursing.

What are the possible or reasonably likely side effects of GAMMAGARD LIQUID?

GAMMAGARD LIQUID can cause serious side effects. If any of the following problems occur after starting GAMMAGARD LIQUID, stop the infusion immediately and contact your HCP or call emergency services:

Hives, swelling in the mouth or throat, itching, trouble breathing, wheezing, fainting or dizziness. These could be signs of a serious allergic reaction.

Bad headache with nausea, vomiting, stiff neck, fever, and sensitivity to light. These could be signs of irritation and swelling of the lining around your brain.

Reduced urination, sudden weight gain, or swelling in your legs. These could be signs of a kidney problem.

Pain, swelling, warmth, redness, or a lump in your legs or arms. These could be signs of a blood clot.

Brown or red urine, fast heart rate, yellow skin or eyes. These could be signs of a liver or blood problem.

Chest pain or trouble breathing, or blue lips or extremities. These could be signs of a serious heart or lung problem.

Fever over 100 degrees Fahrenheit. This could be a sign of an infection.

The following one or more possible reactions may occur at the site of infusion of GAMMAGARD LIQUID for PI, generally go away within a few hours, and are less likely after the first few infusions:

Mild or moderate pain Swelling Itching Redness Bruising Warmth

During the infusion of GAMMAGARD LIQUID for PI, look out for the first signs of the following common side effects:

Headache Migraine Fever Fatigue Itching Rashes/hives Cough Chest pain/tightness Chills/shaking chills Dizziness Nausea/vomiting Faster heart rate Upper abdominal pain Increased blood pressure Muscle cramps Sore throat

The most common side effects of GAMMAGARD LIQUID for MMN include:

Headache Chest discomfort Muscle spasms Muscular weakness Nausea Sore throat Ear pain Pain in hands or feet

These are not all the possible side effects. Talk to your HCP about any side effect that bothers you or that does not go away.

For additional safety information, including Warning about Blood Clots, Decreased Kidney Function, and Kidney Failure, please see the accompanying Full Prescribing Information for Patients provided with this material or on the Gammagard Liquid website, and discuss with your healthcare provider.

You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit, or call 1-800-FDA-1088.

GAMMAGARD LIQUID is supported by a strong legacy of more than 60 years of experience in IgG therapies. IgG is derived from plasma, which is part of human blood. Every step of the process used to make GAMMAGARD LIQUID ensures that your therapy is reliable and meets high safety standards.

3 steps to meet high safety standards

The plasma that’s used to make GAMMAGARD LIQUID goes through a rigorous process to get rid of viruses that could have potentially been included during the collection.

STEP 1. Virus reduction

Plasma cells inactivating the viruses.

The plasma is treated with a solution that inactivates viruses within minutes

STEP 2. Virus removal

Plasma cells removing viruses.

The plasma goes through a filter process to remove small germs by size

STEP 3. Virus inactivation

Plasma in a temperature safe container.

The plasma is kept in special conditions to further inactivate viruses

Why are plasma donors needed?

They can save lives. For many rare diseases, including MMN, immunoglobulin is an important treatment available—and it can’t be made without plasma donations. Learn more and find a donor center near you.


If a BioLife Center is not in your area, you can also donate through the American Red Cross.
