A Multicenter, Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of lGIV-C as a Corticosteroid Sparing Agent in Corticosteroid Dependent Patients With Generalized Myasthenia Gravis
This is a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of Immune Globulin (Human), 10% Caprylate/Chromatography Purified (IGIV-C) as a corticosteroid (CS)-sparing agent in subjects with CS-dependent Myasthenia Gravis (MG).
• Anti-acetylcholine receptor antibody positive
• Confirmed diagnosis of generalized MG historically meeting the clinical criteria for diagnosis of MG defined by the Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of America (MGFA) classification of Class II, III, IV, or V historically
• At Screening, subjects may have symptoms controlled by CS or were MGFA Class II-IVa inclusive (Class IVb and Class V excluded). Subjects who only have a history of ocular MG may not enroll.
• On systemic CS for a minimum period of at least 3 months and on a stable CS dose of >=15 mg/day and <=60 mg/day (prednisone equivalent) for the month prior to Screening.
• Had a tapering CS dose that the study investigator considered to be appropriate.
• At least 1 previous completed attempt to taper CS in order to minimize CS dose (lowest feasible dose based on observed MG signs and symptoms)
