What is Carimune NF?

Carimune NF is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by CSL Behring AG. Carimune NF, Nanofiltered, Immune Globulin Intravenous immunoglobulin (Human), is a sterile, highly purified antibody product containing all the IgG antibodies that regularly occur in the donor population.

Carimune NF is used for the maintenance treatment of patients with primary immunodeficiencies, such as common variable immunodeficiency, X-linked agammaglobulinemia, and severe combined immunodeficiency.

What doses of Carimune NF are available?

Carimune NF is available as a white lyophilized powder, in the following doses: 6 and 12 g size vials. Carimune NF is reconstituted with sterile (0.9%) Sodium Chloride Injection USP, 5% Dextrose, or Sterile Water only.

Immune globulin IM (IGIM) is for intramuscular use only and not by intravenous administration, which increases the risk of an anaphylactic reaction. Intradermal injection of concentrated gamma globulin solution causes local inflammation, which may be mistaken as an allergic reaction.

Please read the package insert supplied with your medication and always speak with your healthcare provider about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.

Carimune NF active ingredients

Carimune NF contains Immune Globulin Intravenous (Human) as the active ingredient.
