Measles antibody variation among different γ-globulin preparations
Date of Original Version
Among the recommended strategies for preventing measles and its complications in exposed, unvaccinated persons is passive protection by antimeasles containing immune globulin. Human intravenous and intramuscular γ-globulins from different manufacturers were studied for manufacturer-specific variation in measles antibody titers. All γ-globulin samples tested were seropositive for measles antibody. Titer variations were found to be clinically insignificant and thus can be used interchangeably for passive antibody protection against measles. Copyright © 2006 by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins.
