Original Title: Application 1566
Authors' results and conclusions: Overall the evidence was of poor quality. A non-inferiority claim was proposed where immunoglobulin (Ig) was intended to be used for a limited time frame to manage a patient through a crisis or surgery, and has a direct comparator in plasma exchange. Where Ig may be used as an adjunct therapy to immunotherapy or other standard therapeutics (not plasma exchange), there would need to be an additional benefit from the Ig therapy to justify its use.
