Answer

Blood Products

Blood products are use for improvement of immunodeficiency.

Immune globulin, intravenous (Gamimune, Gammar-P, Sandoglobulin, Gammagard)

Limited literature suggests that the use of intravenous immunoglobulin may help speed resolution of the acute IM syndrome and prevent some secondary infections due to humoral immunodeficiency. No controlled studies exist, and its use is still speculative.
