The role of VariZIG in pregnancy.

Varicella infection during pregnancy is associated with serious maternal and fetal complications such as congenital varicella syndrome, maternal pneumonia and neonatal varicella.

Presently, post-exposure prophylaxis involves the administration of a varicella zoster immunoglobulin (VariZIG™) to prevent or reduce the severity of an infection. The US FDA recently approved VariZIG for licensure and recommend that it be administered as soon as possible following VZV exposure, ideally within 96 h for greatest effectiveness.
