About This Drug

Immune globulin is made up of antibodies called immunoglobulins. It is used to prevent or reduce the severity of infections in people with a weakened immune system. Also, it can be used to increase platelets in people with immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP), and to treat some neuromuscular diseases and a number of other conditions. It is given in the vein (IV), as an injection under the skin(subcutaneously), or in the muscle (intramuscular).
