Abstract

Immunoglobulin G (IgG) concentrates are immune-modulating, anti-inflammatory human blood plasma-derived products that can be used for the treatment of some peripheral neuropathies and a range of other pain disorders. While evidence is still emerging, IgG is a relatively safe but expensive, therapeutic strategy for chronic pain conditions.
