  • identifies the some commonly used IVIg products Gamimune-N-10% excipient (Glycine) had the least amount of sodium chloride, had no sucrose, and is isosmolar (274 mOsm/L at 10%). Carimune is a lyophilized powder that can be reconstituted in sterile water or normal saline. It contains 1.67 g sucrose/g IVIg and at 12% in saline has an osmolality of 1074 mOsm/L and when reconstituted in sterile water has an osmolality of 768 mOsm/L. Polygam 10% also is lyophilized and can be reconstituted in sterile water or normal saline. If reconstituted in NS, Polygam 10% has an osmolality of 1250 mOsm/L. In fact, at 10%, the osmolality is identical to a 2% saline infusion In 2003, Bayer introduced Gamunex, stablizied with glycine, to date has not been associated with any reports of acute renal failure. At Tisch, Gamunex is used, while at BH Carimune (Sandoglobulin) is used
  • A literature search of articles published on the efficacy of IVIG in the treatment of nephritis between 1985 and 2003 Thirty-two reports entailing 78 patients with IVIG-induced nephrotoxicity their data were compared with 88 patients reported to the FDA. -Overall, no specific differences were noted between the 2 groups of patients, as their age and indications for using IVIG were similar. -Preexisting renal disease, defined as a baseline serum creatinine of 1.4 mg/dL, was noted in 45% of case reports, while the data from the FDA reports were incomplete; in 54 cases, 26% had prior renal insufficiency ( P 0.05). -Most of the patients in both groups who developed renal toxicity received sucrose-containing IVIG products. (72% in the literature and 90% in the FDA group) The time of acute renal failure onset occurred between 1 and 10 days following IVIG administration. Peak serum creatinine levels were reached in all patients between 3 and 8 days (median, 5 days). In most cases renal failure was oliguric. -A high percentage of patients required hemodialysis, 31% in published cases and 40% in the FDA report. -The duration of the renal failure ranged from 3 to 45 days and in about 85% of cases it was reversible, with return of sCr level to baseline. -Death occurred in 10 to 15% of all patients in both groups despite treatment. All deaths were in patients with severe underlying medical conditions (pneumonia, cardiac disease, and SLE) and the extent to which renal failure contributed to their deaths was undetermined. -Renal histology done in a minority of the cases (n=9) demonstrated vacuolization and swelling of the proximal tubules c/w osmotic injury. -In the other 9 published patients -7 had tubular injury and vacuolization consistent with osmotic nephrosis; -1 patient had tubulo-interstitial infiltrates, and one had cryoglobulin deposits. -In 8 of these 9 cases the stabilizing agent used in the IVIG preparation was sucrose.
  • described one institution’s experience with IVIg-related complications This study is a retrospective analysis of infusion-related AE that are associated with various IVIg products Eight (8.2%) patients (P < 0.0001) in the Carimune group developed ARF, while none of the other groups developed ARF. This finding coincides with previously report that 90% of ARF occurred with sucrose-based products. One of the patients who underwent biopsy showed “vacuolization” of proximal tubule.
  • identical to those described in humans and experimental animals following infusion of hypertonic sucrose or mannitol solutions, known as “osmotic nephrosis”
  • renal histology extensive vacuolization of the proximal tubules, with swelling and narrowing of the tubular lumina consistent with osmotic injury No acute glomerular inflammation or immunoglobulin deposition in the glomeruli or obstruction of the urinary tubules by immunoglobulins observed

  • reconstituted Sandoglobulin with sterile water instead of the NaCl 0.9% provided with the product. This reduced the osmolality of the 10% solution from approximately 1550 to 640 mOsm/kg.20 However, this was still much higher than the osmolality of the plasma (300 mOsm/kg).

    20. 20. Conclusion <ul><li>It is likely that the “osmotic nephrosis” from sucrose is the mechanism of renal damage caused by IVIG </li></ul><ul><li>This hypothesis is supported by several facts: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The clinical time course of acute renal failure is similar to the clearance rate of sucrose molecules in animal models. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The majority of reported cases used IVIG with sucrose as a stabilizer. </li></ul></ul>
    21. 21. <ul><ul><li>The histopathological findings in patients who underwent renal biopsy are identical to those seen in animals with sucrose nephropathy. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Patients who have tolerated maltose-containing preparations subsequently developed renal insufficiency following use of sucrose containing IVIG preparations. </li></ul></ul>
    22. 22. Why Sucrose? <ul><li>IVIG products with different stabilizing agent </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Disaccharides: sucrose and maltose </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Monosaccharide: glucose </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Polyphilic sugar alcohol: D-sorbitol </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Non-essential aa: Glycine </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Albumin </li></ul></ul><ul><li>all stabilizing sugars is metabolized in liver or at the brush border of the prox tubule </li></ul><ul><ul><li>except for sucrose </li></ul></ul>
    23. 23. <ul><li>Sucrose  glucose and fructose (in small intestine) by sucrase </li></ul><ul><li>When given intravenously, no hydrolyzation occurs -> all of the sucrose is filtered at the glmoerulus and eliminated unchanged in the urine </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Decreased renal function prolongs exposure of the tubule to the sucrose load </li></ul></ul><ul><li>High osmolar sucrose load, intracellular accumulation, and lack of degradation -> osmotic nephrosis </li></ul>
    24. 24. Preglomerular vasoconstriction may contribute to the fall in glomerular filtration rate <ul><li>Increase in tubular osmolality, in conjuction with increased choloride delivery to the macula densa, could activate the tubuloglomerular feedback system and decrease single-nephron GFR </li></ul>
    25. 25. Conclusion <ul><li>Incidence of IGIV-associated ARF cannot be determined </li></ul><ul><ul><li>but reported cases suggest low incidence </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Keep in mind the at-risk population </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Pre-existing renal disease, DM, hypovolemia, sepsis, concomitant tx w nephrotoxic agents, or aged greater than or equal to 65 yo </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Mechanism of insult still unclear </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Epidemiologic evidence suggestive </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Animal/experimental models provide additional insight </li></ul></ul></ul>
