Receive IVIG Therapy At-Home to Strengthen a Weakened Immune System
Intravenous Immunoglobulin Therapy (IVIG) Given In a Home Setting by Registered Nurses from Health Force of Georgia Help Fight Infections
IVIG Therapy is a proven treatment in use for 30+ years to treat patients with weakened immune systems or autoimmune diseases where the body cannot make enough antibodies against germs that can cause infections. IVIG Therapy can help fight infections by injecting antibodies directly into the bloodstream. Both adults and children can receive in-home IVIG.

- Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura
- B-cell Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia
- Common Variable Immune Deficiency (CVID)
- Kawasaki Disease
- Primary Immunodeficiency Disease (PI)

- Multifocal Motor Neuropathy
- Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy
Benefits of Home IVIG Therapy
By allowing patients to have greater control over their schedule, and eliminating the time/distance stress of traveling to a hospital or clinic to receive treatment, home IVIG infusion therapy can help increase quality of life, decrease healthcare & pharmaceutical costs and produce more positive patient outcomes. Studies also show lower rates of infection, such as pneumonia and bronchitis, for patients receiving IVIG treatment at-home compared to outpatient hospitals.
