21 March 2011 Study demonstrates relationship between subcutaneous IgG (SCIg) dosage and clinical outcomes with Hizentra® treatment in patients with primary immunodeficiencies

Data presented by CSL Behring today suggest that treatment with higher dose Hizentra® (IgPro 20) correlates with reduced risk of infection and missed school or work among patients with primary immunodeficiencies (PI). These data, presented at the 2011 American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology annual meeting, derived from two recent trials of Hizentra, one performed in the United States and one in the European Union, and aimed to show the relationship between subcutaneous IgG (SCIg) dosage and clinical outcomes. Earlier studies have shown that higher immunoglobulin G (IgG) doses by intravenous (IVIg) infusion result in higher serum IgG and therefore fewer infections. , Hizentra is indicated for the treatment of patients with PI.

19 March 2011 New Model Provides Insights into Intravenous and Subcutaneous Immunoglobulin Pharmacokinetics in Patients with Primary Immunodeficiencies

CSL Behring today announced the development of an innovative pharmacokinetic (PK) model that allows the absorption, distribution, metabolism, and elimination of subcutaneous (SC) immunoglobulin G (IgG) following administration to be simulated with a high degree of accuracy and precision. The new PK model provides a novel means of simulating the mechanism by which SC IgG is transported after it is injected into the subcutaneous tissue. Data from the model, which was developed by CSL Behring in collaboration with researchers at Cardiff University, Keele University, and Prism Ideas Ltd, were described in both a poster presentation and an oral presentation at the 2011 American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology annual meeting.
