  • Immune Globulin

Does administration of immune globulin (IG) cause adverse events?

Serious adverse events from GamaSTAN IG are rare. Anaphylaxis has been reported after repeated administration to people with known immunoglobulin A (IgA) deficiency; thus, IG should not be administered to these people. IG products including GamaSTAN have been associated with the formation of blood clots (thrombosis) after administration, particularly if the patient has other risk factors for thrombosis. Patients should be counseled about this risk.
