BIVIGAM® is an intravenous immune globulin indicated for the treatment of primary humoral immunodeficiency. This includes, but is not limited to, agammaglobulinemia, common variable immunodeficiency, Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome and severe combined immunodeficiency. These primary immunodeficiencies (“PI”) are a group of genetic disorders. Initially thought to be very rare, it is now believed that as many as 250,000 people in the U.S. have some form of PI. BIVIGAM® contains a broad range of antibodies similar to those found in normal human plasma. These antibodies are directed against bacteria and viruses, and help to protect PIDD patients against serious infections. BIVIGAM® is a purified, sterile, ready-to-use preparation of concentrated polyclonal Immunoglobulin (“IgG”) antibodies. Antibodies are proteins in the human immune system that work to defend against infections and disease. FDA approval for BIVIGAM® was received by Biotest Pharmaceuticals Corporation (“BPC” or “Biotest”) on December 19, 2012, and production of BIVIGAM® was halted by Biotest in December 2016. ADMA Biologics obtained ownership and all rights, title and interest in BIVIGAM® on June 6, 2017 as part of the Biotest Therapy Business Unit (“BTBU”) asset acquisition. ADMA optimized the production process for BIVIGAM® and submitted a Prior Approval Supplement (“PAS”) to the United States Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) to amend the Biologics License Application (“BLA”) for BIVIGAM® in June of 2018, with a target action date of December 18, 2018 under the Prescription Drug User Fee Act (“PDUFA”). If the PAS is approved by the FDA, ADMA expects to be able to relaunch the product for commercial sale during the first half of 2019.
