Abstract

Intravenously administered immunoglobulins (IVIg) have been used for the treatment of various autoimmune diseases. In multiple sclerosis (MS), recent studies point out the beneficial role of this treatment that reduces relapse rate and arrests disease progression in relapsing-remitting patients. In the present article, we summarize and interpret the clinical, immunological, and neuro-radiological data related to IVIg treatment in MS. A synthesis between the information gathered will enable better understanding and treatment of this chronic disease.
