What Is Gamunex?

Gamunex-C is a type of sterile antibody solution that is extracted from human beings. Injections of this solution are given to patients suffering from a weak immune system or immune disorder. Gamunex-C injections help such patients combat infections.

Gamunex-C is a combination of immune globulins (antibodies) that is used as a treatment for patients suffering from immunodeficiencies. There are a number of conditions where patients lack an optimally working immune system that produces antibodies to keep them safe from microorganism attacks.

In such cases, Gamunex-C acts as an external source of antibodies that can boost the immune performance of the body.

What Is Gamunex Used To Treat?

Primary Immunodeficiency (PI)

Gamunex-C is primarily indicated for conditions like primary immunodeficiency diseases (PID).

Congenital Agammaglobulinemia

Immunoglobulin therapy has shown promising results in alleviating symptoms of congenital agammaglobulinemia such as:

  • Fever
  • Sinusitis
  • Diarrhea
  • Otitis media

X-Linked Agammaglobulinemia

IgG replacement in patients suffering from X-linked agammaglobulinemia can impart symptomatic relief. This treatment also reduces the incidence of pneumonia and hospital admission in patients with agammaglobulinemia.

Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome

The FDA has approved IV antibody treatment (including Gamunex-C) for Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome.

Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP)

Intravenous immunoglobulin treatment can work for ITP. Studies show that Gamunex for idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura can improve the prognosis and help alleviate symptoms.

Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (CIPD)

In one trial, Gamunex-C was found to be the best treatment option for the management of chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy. The administration of Gamunex-C led to significant improvement in disability scores. The participants also experienced improvements in grip strength in both hands.

Gamunex Infusion/ Administration

Injection of immune globulin 10% caprylate can be given into a vein or under the skin. This means Gamunex-C can be given as an IVIG infusion or a subcutaneous infusion.

IV Infusion

For intravenous infusion, Gamunex is given just like other IVIG therapies. The IV route is used for the treatment of primary immunodeficiencies (PI), immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP), and chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP).

Note: You should not inject Gamunex-C intravenously if your doctor has instructed you to use subcutaneous infusion.

Subcutaneous Infusion

A Gamunex-C infusion pump is used to inject the solution subcutaneously. Patients must fill the pump reservoir and prepare the infusion pump. Subcutaneous infusion can be given at different sites of the body at the same time.

  • Rash on skin that may be accompanied by redness and bruising
  • Itching on the injection site
