Details and patient eligibility


This is an open-label phase III study with a 12-week wash-in/wash-out period followed by a 12-month efficacy period. The main goals of the study are to assess the efficacy of octanorm in preventing serious bacterial infections (SBI) compared with historical control data and to evaluate the pharmacokinetic (PK) characteristics of octanorm.


75 patients




2 to 75 years old


No Healthy Volunteers

  • Patients with at least 6 infusions on regular treatment with any IVIG, there of a minimum of the last 2 months on the same product prior to entering the study. Constant IVIG dose between 200 and 800 mg/kg body weight (±20% of the mean dose for the last 6 infusions).
  • Availability of the IgG trough levels of 2 previous IVIG infusions before enrollment, and maintenance of greater than or equal to 5.0 g/L in the trough levels of these 2 previous infusions.
  • Negative result on a pregnancy test (HCG-based assay in urine) for women of childbearing potential and use of a reliable method of contraception for the duration of the study.
  • For adult patients: freely given written informed consent. For minor patients: freely given written informed consent from parents/legal guardians and written informed assent from the child/adolescent in accordance with the applicable regulatory requirements.

  • Treatment with any investigational medicinal product within 3 months prior to first infusion of octanorm.
  • Presence of any condition, that is likely to interfere with the evaluation of study medication or satisfactory conduct of the trial.
