How is donating blood or plasma necessary for an IVIG treatment?
Today as I sit and write my monthly blog and I realize how truly important donating blood and plasma is to our KD children. IVIG is the treatment for the majority of children who are diagnosed with Kawasaki Disease no matter the age. IVIG is immune globulin purified from plasma by a manufacturing process called fractionation and administered intravenously to patients. This magic drug is what transforms our children from the hell that has plagued their body in the form of inflammation, to smiling, talking, and moving once again.
