Tick-borne encephalitis virus-neutralizing antibodies in different immunoglobulin preparations.

Author information

  • 1Global Pathogen Safety, Baxter BioScience, Vienna, Austria.


Patients with primary immunodeficiency (PIDs) depend on the presence of a variety of antibody specificities in intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG). Using the tick-borne encephalitis virus (TBEV), geographic variability in IVIG antibody content was shown. Care should therefore be exercised when treating PIDs in a given geography, as only locally sourced plasma contains the antibody specificities against the circulating pathogens in the given locality.
