  Purpose

The purpose of the study is to determine the feasibility of infusing a full 4-week dose of Immune Globulin Intravenous (Human), 10% in a single subcutaneous site and the amount of recombinant human hyaluronidase needed to infuse that dose with no more than mild local adverse drug reactions.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Ability to administer, after priming with recombinant human hyaluronidase, at least one half of a 4-week dose (minimum of 200 mg/kg) of IgG in a single infusion site, via the subcutaneous route, with no more than mild local adverse drug reactions. [ Time Frame: 72 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Enrollment: 11
Study Start Date: December 2006
Study Completion Date: November 2007
Primary Completion Date: November 2007 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1
Tolerability of subcutaneous infusions
Biological: Recombinant human hyaluronidase + immune globulin intravenous
Dose (calculated) of rHuPH20 followed by subcutaneous infusion of IGIV, 10% to determine tolerability: doses of rHuPH20 and IGIV, 10% to be increased, as tolerated and as per protocol, until a full 4-week IgG dose can be administered
Other Names:
  • rHuPH20 = Recombinant Human Hyaluronidase
  • IGIV, 10% = Immune Globulin Intraveneous (Human), 10%
Experimental: 2
Tolerability of subcutaneous infusions and pharmacokinetics
Biological: Recombinant human hyaluronidase + immune globulin intravenous
  1. IV infusion of IGIV, 10% to determine pharmacokinetics
  2. Intervention as in Arm 1: Dose (calculated) of rHuPH20 followed by subcutaneous infusion of IGIV, 10% to determine tolerability: doses of rHuPH20 and IGIV, 10% to be increased, as tolerated and as per protocol, until a full 4-week IgG dose can be administered
Other Names:
  • rHuPH20 = Recombinant Human Hyaluronidase
  • IGIV, 10% = Immune Globulin Intraveneous (Human), 10%

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Written informed consent from either the subject or the subject's legally acceptable representative
  • Diagnosis of a PID disorder as defined by World Health Organization criteria1 for which the subject had been receiving a regimen of weekly or biweekly (every-other-week) subcutaneous IgG infusions or IGIV infusions every 21 to 28 days over a period of at least 8 weeks pre-study at an equivalent of a 4-week dose of 300 to 800 mg/kg bodyweight
  • Adults/adolescents aged 16 years and older)
  • For female subjects of child-bearing age: negative urine pregnancy test result at study entry and agreement to employ adequate birth control measures for the duration of the study

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects positive at enrollment for one or more of the following: HBsAg, PCR for HCV, PCR for HIV Type 1
  • Subjects with levels of alanine aminotransferase (ALT) or aspartate aminotransferase (AST) > 2.5 times the upper limit of normal for the testing laboratory
  • Subjects with neutropenia (defined as an absolute neutrophil count [ANC] <= 500/mm3).
  • Subjects with serum creatinine levels greater than 1.5 times the upper limit of normal for age and gender
  • Subjects with current history of malignancy
  • Subjects with a history of thrombotic episodes (deep vein thrombosis, myocardial infarction, cerebrovascular accident)
  • Subjects with abnormal protein loss (protein losing enteropathy, nephritic syndrome, severe lung disease)
  • Subjects with anemia that in the opinion of the investigator precluded phlebotomy for laboratory studies
  • Subjects who had been exposed to any blood or blood product other than an intravenous immunoglobulin (IGIV), SC immunoglobulin (SCIG), immune serum globulin (ISG) preparations, or albumin within the 6 months prior to study entry.
  • Subjects with an ongoing history of hypersensitivity or persistent reactions (urticaria, breathing difficulty, severe hypotension, or anaphylaxis) following IGIV, SCIG and/or ISG infusions
  • Subjects with IgA deficiency and known anti IgA antibodies
  • Subjects who had received antibiotic therapy for the treatment of infection within 7 days prior to enrollment
  • Subjects who had participated in another clinical study involving an investigational product or device within 28 days prior to study entry
  • Subjects with inability or unwillingness to meet all the requirements of this study
  • If female, pregnancy or lactation at time of study entry
