The signs and symptoms of CVID include hypogammaglobulinaemia (IgG, IgA, and/or IgM), poor titre response to vaccination with polysaccharide and protein antigens (e.
Generally, the diagnosis of CVID can be made by demonstrating hypogammaglobulinaemia together with poor or absent response to immunization and characteristic clinical manifestation.
monoclonal band (or suspicion of a band) requiring IFE for confirmation, or (e) hypogammaglobulinaemia when suppression of the [gamma] region was evident (hypogammaglobulinaemia).
By our standard protocol, all samples in the probable monoclonal band (n = 79) and hypogammaglobulinaemia (n = 19) categories would proceed to serum IFE.
