What are the other typical or common alternatives to intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) therapy?

Authors: Antonio Migliore, Tapani Keranen, Sinikka Sihvo

Internal reviewers: Kristian Lampe

IVIG is considered as an experimental therapy in AD. Thus, the alternatives to IVIG in AD are the three ChEIs and memantine. It is recommended that patients with AD and mild to moderate dementia are initially treated with one of the cholinesterase inhibitors (ChEIs), i.e. donepezil, galantamine, or rivastigmine {30} {38} {89}. See {CUR12}.
