Intravenous Immunoglobulin (IVIG) is a solution of highly purified immunoglobulin G, derived from large pools of human plasma that contains antibodies against a broad spectrum of bacterial and viral agents.

IVIG can be given safely in the convenience of your home. It can be given either intravenously (IV through the veins) or subcutaneously (under the skin).

NBN Infusions will send a nurse with all necessary supplies to complete your infusion, in the comfort of your own home.

NBN Infusions will even help you and your doctor complete all necessary documents. Our goal is to make the process as easy as possible so you can focus on getting the treatment that you need.

Insurance companies can be challenging to deal with in the IVIG treatment approval process sometimes. So, NBN Infusions will help you deal with your insurance process so that you can get approved for your IVIG treatments in a timely manner.
