Criteria for the clinical use of immunogloulin

Posted 5 years ago

The Criteria for Immunoglobulin Use in Australia (the Criteria) is changing to Version 3. These changes will apply in BloodSTAR from 22 October 2018.

The criteria is changing:

  • To align with new evidence
  • To ensure those whose health is most likely to be improved with Ig therapy can get it
  • To manage the growth in demand for this precious, human-derived product.

Some current authorisations will move to the new Criteria automatically, while others may require prescribers to provide more information at the next patient review.
