A comparison of the patient-borne costs of therapy with gamma globulin given at the hospital or at home.
The major aim of this study was to estimate and compare the patient-borne costs of lifelong subcutaneous gamma globulin therapy at the hospital and at home.
Thirty patients were included and the data were collected with a questionnaire.
The introduction of self-therapy at home reduced the total yearly costs by approximately 50% and the out-of-pocket expenses for the patients by 85%.
