human normal immunoglobulin

This medicine is authorised for use in the European Union.


Kiovig is a medicine used to support the immune system (the body’s natural defences) in two main groups of patients:

  • Patients at risk of infection because they do not have enough antibodies (also called immunoglobulins, proteins in the blood that help the body to fight disease). These can be people who are born with a lack of antibodies (primary immunodeficiency syndrome, PID). These also include people who have developed a lack of antibodies after birth (secondary immunodeficiency syndrome, SID), who have low levels of certain antibodies (called IgG) and who suffer from infections that are severe, keep coming back, and are not cured by medicines used to treat infections;
  • Patients with certain immune disorders. These comprise patients with primary immune thrombocytopenia (ITP), who do not have enough platelets (components in the blood that help it to clot) and who are at high risk of bleeding; patients with Guillain-Barré syndrome or chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP), inflammatory disorders of the nerves that result in muscle weakness and numbness; patients with Kawasaki disease, a disease mainly seen in children which causes inflammation of blood vessels; and patients with multifocal motor neuropathy (MMN), nerve damage which causes weakness of the arms and legs. 

The medicine contains the active substance human normal immunoglobulin.
