Analysis using a new economic model demonstrates that higher dosing of subcutaneous immunoglobulin therapy (SCIg) is a cost-effective alternative to intravenous IgG replacement therapy (IVIG) in patients with primary immunodeficiencies (PID). The analysis shows higher doses of SCIg are less expensive than IVIG therapy because they translate into lower health care resource utilization including lower costs for hospital care.
