Favorable pharmacokinetics1,2,4,5

For both adult and pediatric patients 2 years of age and older, total IgG trough levels did not fluctuate during the course of the study, with higher trough levels achieved with cutaquig treatment compared with their previous IVIg

  • At the end of the IVIg period, trough levels ranged from 5.0 to 5.1 g/L
  • Over the entire SCIg treatment period, individual trough levels of total IgG ranged from 4.4 to 24.0 g/L

IgG: immunoglobulin G; IVIg: intravenous immunoglobulin; SCIg: subcutaneous immunoglobulin.

Once-weekly cutaquig infusions of approximately 161 mg/kg were:

  • Sufficient to maintain trough IgG levels well above the minimum recommended level of 5-6 g/l.
  • Correlated with low infection rates in children and adolescents with PI.5

In addition to once-weekly infusions, cutaquig offers a flexible dosing schedule that includes:

  • Daily (2-7 days)
  • Every other week

See Dosage and Administration


Switching from IVIg to cutaquig Calculate using a conversion factor (1.30):
  • Previous IVIg dose (in grams) x 1.3
  • Number of weeks between IVIg doses
Switching from other Subcutaneous Immunoglobulin (SCIg) Dosing should be the same as for previous SCIg.
Flexible dosing schedule includes Daily (2-7 days), Weekly and Every Other Week
