Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety, efficacy and pharmacokinetics of Immune Globulin Intravenous (Human) IVIG-SN™ in subjects with primary immunodeficiency diseases.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Immunologic Deficiency Syndrome Drug: Immune Globulin Intravenous (Human) 5% Liquid, IVIG-SN™ Phase 3

Detailed Description:

This is an open-label, single-arm, historically controlled, prospective, multicenter phase III study to evaluate the safety, efficacy and pharmacokinetics of Immune Globulin Intravenous (Human) IVIG-SN™ in subjects with primary immunodeficiency diseases.

Subject will be infused every 21 to 28 days according to their previous IVIG treatment schedule. Subjects treated every 28 days will receive 13 study IVIG infusions. Subject treated every 21 days will receive 17 study IVIG infusions.

Duration of treatment:The total duration of treatment is 12 months.

Other Names:
  • IGIV
  • Immune Globulin Intravenous (Human) 5% Liquid

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence of acute serious bacterial infections [ Time Frame: one year ]
  2. Overall incidence of adverse events that occur during or within 1 hour, 24 hours and 72 hours following an infusion of test product [ Time Frame: Within 72 hours after treatment with IVIG-SN ]
  3. The Pharmacokinetic (PK) Area under the curve (AUC0-t, AUC0-inf) of Immunoglobulin G (IgG). [ Time Frame: After 5th infusion ]
  4. The Pharmacokinetic (PK) Maximum concentration (Cmax) of Immunoglobulin G (IgG). [ Time Frame: After 5th infusion ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. The number of days missed work/school/kindergarten/day care or unable to perform normal daily activities due to infection. [ Time Frame: one year ]
  2. Days of unscheduled physician visits and hospitalizations due to infection [ Time Frame: One year ]
  3. Number of days on therapeutic antibiotics [ Time Frame: One year ]
  4. The incidence of infections other than acute serious bacterial infections [ Time Frame: One year ]
  5. Annual rate of fever episodes per patient [ Time Frame: One year ]
  6. All adverse events regardless of causality assessment by investigator [ Time Frame: One year ]
  7. The proportion and number of IGIV infusions for which the infusion rate was decreased due to adverse events [ Time Frame: One year ]
  8. The proportion of adverse events considered by the investigator to be product related [ Time Frame: One year ]
  9. To monitor viral safety (freedom from transmission of blood borne virus diseases) [ Time Frame: One year ]
  10. Descriptive analyses of PK parameters for specific antibodies (anti-Hemophilus influenza type b, anti-Streptococcus pneumonia serotypes, anti-Tetanus toxoid, anti-cytomegalovirus (CMV), anti-measles) will be performed. [ Time Frame: One year ]

Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects with a confirmed clinical diagnosis of a Primary Immunodeficiency Disease as defined by IUIS (International Union of Immunological Societies) and require treatment with IVIG. Documented agammaglobulinemia or hypogammaglobulinemia (preferably with documented antibody deficiency).
  • Male or female, ages 2 to 70 years.
  • The subject has received 300-900 mg/kg of a licensed IGIV therapy at 21 or 28 day intervals for at least 3 months prior to this study.
  • At least 2 documented IgG trough levels of ≥ 5 g/L are obtained at two infusion cycles (21 or 28 days) within 12 months prior to study enrollment.
  • Subject is willing to comply with all requirements of the protocol.
  • Females of child-bearing potential with a negative urine pregnancy test and who agree to employ adequate birth control measures during the study.
  • Subject, parent or guardian has signed the informed consent form and a child assent form if appropriate. Pediatric subjects are defined as 2-17 years of age at study entry and will require assent forms as appropriate per study documentation and regulations of the local jurisdiction.
  • Authorization to access personal health information.
  • Subjects currently participating in a clinical trial with another experimental IVIG may be enrolled if they have received stable IVIG therapy for at least 3 infusion cycles prior to receiving IVIG-SN™ and all inclusion and exclusion criteria are satisfied. Other IVIGs will be prohibited between the first infusion of IVIG-SN™ and Follow Up Visit 1.
  • Subjects currently participating in a trial of SCIG can be enrolled if they are switched to IVIG for three infusion cycles (21 or 28 days) prior to enrollment in this study.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Subject has secondary immunodeficiency.
  • Subject was newly diagnosed and has not been treated with immunoglobulin or has been diagnosed with dysgammaglobulinemia or isolated IgG subclass deficiency.
