  • Gabriela Ma ClaudiaTiago

  • IVIG is a blood product administered intravenouslyIt contains the pooled IgG extracted from the plasma of over one thousand blood donorsImmunoglobulin products from human plasma were first used in 1952 to treat immune deficiency. It was initially shown to be effective in ITP in 1981.Treatment for: Immune deficiencies (plasma protein replacement therapy)Autoimmune Diseases (anti-inflammatory at a high dose 1-2 g/Kg) Acute InfectionsIVIG cost is climbing and well over $50/g. ($8,000 for a 80 kg person at 2g/kg)IVIG's effects last between 2 weeks and 3 months

    primary immune dysfunction: 100 to 400 mg/kg of body weight every 3 to 4 weeks.autoimmune diseases: 2 grams per kilogram of body weight for three to six months over a five day course once a month. Then maintenance therapy of 100 to 400 mg/kg of body weight every 3 to 4 weeks follows.

  • Antibody Feedback: Cross-linking between BCR and FcIIR B cell blockedFc mechanism of IVIG action

  • IVIG mechanism of actionThe precise mechanism by which IVIG suppresses harmful inflammation has not been definitively establishedBUT.is believed to involve the Fc receptor

    How? Which one(s)?


  • IVIG mechanism actionFc Receptors (FcyR)a protein found on the surface of NK cells, macrophages, neutrophils, mast cells and othersFcRs are the most important Fc receptors for inducing phagocytosis of opsonized microbes

  • Glycoforms of IgG (Asn297)Carbohydrate whit terminal sugar residues such as galactose, sialic acid, N-acetylglucosamine, and fucosemore than 30 different antibody glycovariants have been detected in human serum, with about 25%30% of them in the IgG glycoform.

    Thus, these variants, multiplied by the four different IgG subclasses, result in more than 120 different glycoproteins in the IVIG preparation that could contain the active anti-inammatory component

  • IVIG has anti-inflammatory effect at a high dose 1-2 g/Kg

    120 different glycoproteins in the IVIG preparation terminal sugar residues of sialic acid confers anti-inflammatory property

    1-3% of IgGs in IVIG have sFc (sialylation)

  • DC-SIGN is a C-type lectin receptor

    binds to mannose type carbohydrates.

  • Objective: To define the mechanism by which the 2,6-sialylated Fc mediates an anti- inflammatory response To identify the properties of the regulatory macrophage population To identify the receptor required for initiating this pathway in response to 2,6-sialylated Fc.

  • ResultsDid SIGN-R1 able to bind to the 2,6-sialyted Fc?SIGN-R1 binds 2,6-sialylated Fc.

  • ResultsDid SIGN-R1 able to bind to the 2,6-sialyted Fc and asialylated Fcs?The 2,6-sialylation of the IgG Fc converts the molecule to a species that acquires the ability to engage a mSIGN-R1 and mediate an antiinflammatory response.

    The absence of FcRIIb in the recipient prevented the protection afforded by these splenocytes

Humano: Polimorfismo no gene FcyRII foi relacionado com suscetibilidade ao LES. Alm disso: o tratamento com IVIG (Ig intravenosa) foi desenvolvido para vrias doenas empiricamente. A IVIG (imunoglobulina intravenosa) derivada de um conjunto de amostras de sangue de centenas de doadores. Introduzida h cerca de 30 anos, ela tem sido usada no tratamento de uma srie de distrbios do sistema imunolgico. It is mainly used as treatment in three major categories:Immune deficiencies such as X-linked agammaglobulinemia, hypogammaglobulinemia (primary immune deficiencies), and acquired compromised immunity conditions (secondary immune deficiencies) featuring low antibody levels; Inflammatory and autoimmune diseases; Acute infections.
