Situation
• Millions of sick people can’t make their own antibodies, or they make faulty
ones
• To stay healthy, these people need to get antibodies from another source
• Now, plasma is collected from thousands of healthy people and fractionated to
isolate antibodies
• The antibodies are then shot back into the sick people
• This is called gammglobulin, or IVIG: a $7 billion market!
