BioRx, a Diplomat company, is a national pharmacy and home infusion services provider specializing in the delivery of immune globulin therapy at home, providing personalized support and attention to the needs of patients and their treating physicians. This includes dedicated clinical and support services for primary immune deficiencies and autoimmune-related disorders.
Primary immunodeficiencies occur in patients who have deficient or dysfunctional immune systems, leaving them vulnerable to infection. Immune globulin (Ig) therapy is commonly prescribed to treat various types of primary immunodeficiency. Also known as “antibody replacement therapy,” Ig products work by temporarily replacing deficient levels of antibodies in the bloodstream, thereby strengthening the immune system and reducing the risk of infection.
Autoimmune disorders occur when the body’s immune system attacks healthy cells in the body by mistake. Immune globulin (Ig) products are often prescribed to treat a variety of autoimmune-related disorders–most commonly affecting the neuromuscular system, but other organ systems as well. In many cases, Ig therapy can modulate the inflammatory response of auto-antibodies, and thereby slow disease progression. The outcome of Ig therapy depends on the individual and the specific disorder being treated.
