And the breakthrough method of using the naturally occurring fatty acid Caprylate to inactivate potential viruses almost instantaneously addresses patients' concerns about the safety of an IGIV (a blood-derived product).
Caprylate, a naturally occurring fatty acid, replaces solvent-detergent to preserve the biological activity of the product, while also effectively, safely, and rapidly inactivating enveloped viruses, such as human immunodeficiency, hepatitis B, and hepatitis C.
