What's new

On September 12, 2014, Baxter International Inc. and Halozyme Therapeutics, Inc., announced that the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Baxter’s subcutaneous treatment for adult patients with primary immunodeficiency (PI), HYQVIA [Immune Globulin Infusion 10% (Human) with Recombinant Human Hyaluronidase]. 

HYQVIA is the first subcutaneous immune globulin (IG) treatment approved for PI patients with a dosing regimen requiring only one infusion up to once per month (every three to four weeks) and one injection site per infusion to deliver a full therapeutic dose of IG. The majority of PI patients today receive intravenous infusions in a doctor’s office or infusion center, and current subcutaneous IG treatments require weekly or bi-weekly treatment with multiple infusion sites per treatment.
