Enrollment in this program will be voluntary and will not automatically preclude those patients not participating in the program from accessing GAMMAGARD LIQUID and GAMMAGARD S/D. Baxter will continue to work closely with patient organizations and key thought leaders from different clinical specialties that prescribe IGIV therapy to launch the program. Patients not enrolling in the voluntary GARDian program will still be eligible for other GAMMAGARD patient programs (e.g. GAMMAssist and the Low IgA/Brand Intolerance Program and product Portability programs).
"Baxter has a long, proud history of advancing the science of IGIV therapy and serving the patients who rely on our IGIV therapies," said Larry Guiheen, president, Baxter Biopharmaceuticals, North America. "Baxter is committed to providing continued access to their therapy of choice for our patients. The GARDian program represents our continued commitment to that goal."
