Abstract Share this page

Intravenous immunoglobulins (IVIg) are therapeutic preparations of normal human IgG obtained from pools of more than 1000 healthy blood donors. They are currently used in the treatment of a wide range of auto-immune diseases, whether associated with auto-antibodies or auto-reactive T lymphocytes, as well as in the treatment of systemic inflammatory diseases. Several mechanisms of action have been identified during the last 20 years, including: (i) modulation of Fc receptors expression on leukocytes and endothelial cells; (ii) interaction with complement proteins; (iii) modulation of cytokines and chemokines synthesis and release; (iv) modulation of cell proliferation and apoptosis; (v) remyelinisation; (vi) neutralisation of circulating autoantibodies; (vii) selection of repertoires of B and T lymphocytes; (viii) interaction with other cell-surface molecules on lymphocytes and monocytes; (ix) corticosteroid sparing. These mechanisms of action are multiple and often intricate. However, they are still little known and further investigations are warranted.
