Over $10 Million of CSL Behring's Privigen Was Sold in the U.S. During the Third Quarter of 2008
Date:11/18/2008

MALVERN, Pa., Nov. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Arlington Medical Resources (AMR), a provider of premier market intelligence for the pharmaceutical and diagnostic imaging industries, finds that over $10 million of CSL Behring's Privigen was sold in the U.S. during the third quarter of 2008. Privigen is the newest brand of intravenous immune globulin (IVIG) and was launched in the first quarter of 2008. IVIG is a product created from the blood plasma of thousands of donors and is used to treat immune deficiencies, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases, acute infections and various other diseases.

The newly released edition of the IVIG Market Guide (U.S.) also finds that Baxter sold more grams of IVIG to hospitals than any other company in the U.S. during the third quarter of 2008. Baxter is currently the leader in hospital sales of IVIG.

"Based on recent news, if CSL Behring acquires Talecris, CSL Behring's market share of IVIG will increase significantly and could potentially surpass Baxter as the leader in hospital sales of IVIG," added Matthew W. Mahr, Pharm.D., M.B.A., analyst at AMR.

Why Pharmaceutical Companies Need this Information

The IVIG Market Guide (U.S.) enables pharmaceutical companies to monitor hospital utilization rates of intravenous immune globulin products. The data captured in this audit reveals usage by indication, dosing, ordering physician specialty and patient demographics for recipients of this group of products.
