Intravenous Immunoglobulin (IVIG) therapy and Subcutaneous Immunoglobulin Therapy (SCIG) are used to treat immune deficiencies. They work to give the immune system a boost in order to fight off infections and to strengthen the immune system.  The blood plasma of screened, healthy donors is used for injections and it goes through a purification process before it can be used.  This therapy is also used to treat bone marrow recipients and anyone who has an otherwise compromised immune system due to serious illness.
