Intravenous Immunoglobulin (IVIG) and Evogam (S/C)

Intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) and Evogam are blood products used for specific clinical conditions only. Approval is required before their issue for a new patient.

IVIG comes in two brands: Intragam P and Privigen. Intragam P is derived from plasma of NZ donors and is used for indications that require regular treatment – it comes in 3 g and 12 g. Privigen is derived from plasma of non-NZ donors and is used for one-off indications – it comes in 5 g (50 mL), 10 g (100 mL), or 20 g (200 mL) bottles.

From mid-2023, only Privigen will be available and intragam P will be discontinued.
