  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to measure the changes in the Treatment Satisfaction Questionnaire for Medication in the areas of effectiveness, side effects, and convenience of administration of each medication in Primary Immunodeficiency Disorder (PIDD) subjects transitioning from subcutaneous Vivaglobin® to Hizentra®.


Condition Intervention
Primary Immunodeficiency Disorders
Drug: Hizentra

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Evaluation of Efficacy and Tolerability of Hizentra® in Subjects Transitioning From Vivaglobin® (16% SCIG Product) to Hizentra® (20% SCIG Product)

Further study details as provided by University of South Florida:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To measure the changes in the Treatment Satisfaction Questionnaire for Medication in PIDD subjects transitioning from subcutaneous Vivaglobin® to Hizentra®. [ Time Frame: 32 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Subjects complete the TSQM at each study visit


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To compare the incidence of local site reactions in subjects self-infusing with Vivaglobin® transitioning to Hizentra®. [ Time Frame: 32 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Study subjects complete a weekly infusion diary that is collected at each study visit.

  • To compare the steady state IgG levels in subjects self-infusing with Vivaglobin® transitioning to Hizentra®. [ Time Frame: 32 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    IgG levels are obtained at each visit.


Estimated Enrollment: 50
Study Start Date: October 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: August 2012
Estimated Primary Completion Date: August 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Hizentra
Compare IgG levels and site reaction in subjects transitioning from Vivaglobin to Hizentra
Drug: Hizentra
Subjects transition from Vivaglobin to Hizentra using weekly subcutaneous infusions for 32 weeks.

Detailed Description:

This trial will evaluate subjects with Primary Immunodeficiency Disorder (PIDD) who are currently self-infusing Vivaglobin therapy for at least six months prior to changing to Hizentra® therapy. Following screening and enrollment, subjects will continue to self-infuse Vivaglobin® for seven infusions and then be converted to subcutaneous Hizentra® treatment which they will continue for the next 6 months. The study will determine if Hizentra® provides improved subject satisfaction by Treatment Satisfaction Questionnaire for Medication. Diaries related to the local site reactions, the number of infusion sites per subject/per dose, volume of Hizentra® per site, duration of infusions, systemic side effects of the new medication and dose on IgG levels and antibody titers, and local site reactions with Hizentra®.
