What is GAMMAGARD LIQUID?
About GAMMAGARD LIQUID
GAMMAGARD LIQUID is a ready-to-use liquid medicine that contains immunoglobulin G, or IgG, antibodies, which protect the body against infection. These antibodies, collected from the plasma of healthy people, replace the missing antibodies in patients with Primary Immunodeficiency (PI). GAMMAGARD LIQUID is used to treat PI in people 2 years and older.
GAMMAGARD LIQUID temporarily increases the amount of antibodies in your body to fight germs that can make you sick.
GAMMAGARD LIQUID offers a choice of intravenous (IV) and subcutaneous (SubQ) administration options and can be infused either directly into a vein (IV) or just under the skin into the fatty tissue (SubQ). Talk with your doctor about the treatment administration option that may be best for you.

STEP 1. Virus reduction
The plasma is treated with a solution that inactivates viruses within minutes
STEP 2. Virus removal
The plasma goes through a filter to remove small germs by size
STEP 3. Virus inactivation
The plasma is kept in special conditions to further inactivate viruses
