Özet

Immunoglobulin replacement therapy is the essential treatment of B-cell deficiencies. Because of the high expense of therapy, optimal dose, infusion intervals and serum IgG levels should be well defined. Data of 19 X-linked agammaglobulinemia (XLA), 7 hyper-IgM syndrome (HIM) and 20 common variable immunodeficiency (CVID) patients were analyzed.
