Plasma Cells Produce Immunoglobulin As Glycoprotein Molecules

Immunoglobulin can be utilised in immunotherapy. They are made from a pool of donated blood at blood collection sites and fractionated to extract the protein fraction from the cellular component. Purified immunoglobulin can be used to treat a variety of immunological issues, such as antibody deficiencies, severe combined immunodeficiency diseases (SCID), multiple sclerosis, myasthenia gravis, Kawasaki illness, systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), organ transplants, and many more.

Immunoglobulin, often known as antibodies, are essential in the defence against bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Recurrent infectious illnesses arise when these glycoproteins are deficient, as demonstrated in the following antibody deficiency disorders: Transient hypogammaglobulinemia in childhood; IgA deficiency; IgG subclass deficiency; Immunodeficiency with elevated IgM; Common variable immunodeficiency.
