PPTA news cover with the title written

The CBER Surveillance Program BEST Initiative recently posted its Assessment of Immune Globulin Utilization in Commercially insured and Medicare Populations study report. The aim of the study is to provide a better picture of the evolution of Ig use over a 10-year longitudinal period in the context of emerging scientific evidence and clinical trends. PPTA developed an Executive Summary of the study report, highlighting key observations, findings, and conclusions.

Results from the study confirm that Ig use increased between 2009 and 2019, in both the commercially-insured and Medicare populations. Increases were observed in:

  • the number of Ig administrations
  • the number of enrollees receiving Ig
  • the annual number of administrations per recipient
  • the average aggregate annual dose
  • the average dose per administration (to a lesser extent)
