What Is Octagam?

Octagam infusion is an intravenous immune globulin (IVIG) that contains high levels of antibodies derived from the plasma of healthy people. It is a sterile liquid preparation used to boost the body’s natural immune system so that it can fight infections and protect the body against diseases. 

IVIG therapy such as Octagam is given to immunocompromised people who can not make sufficient antibodies to fight infections.
