How does IVIG help Alzheimers Disease and Vascular Dementia?

0

Despite very promising results in several small early-stage studies, it is not fully understood to what degree IVIG therapy is effective in treating Alzheimer’s disease or exactly how or why it may work as an Alzheimer’s medicine. The most widely accepted theory is that IVIG contains antibodies that may bind to beta amyloid (Aß), a central component of the plaque in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients. It is believed that IVIG treatment may help promote the clearance of Aß from the brain and block Aß’s toxic effects on brain cells.
