|rabies immunoglobulin human diploid cell
Jul 25, 2011
I am going to get the rabies immunoglobulin shot. The immunoglobulin is made up of human diploid cells. Is it possible that during the manufacturing process of the IG, HIV positive blood may be used?
Is there a chance that I will be infected with HIV when I get my IG shot? Thanks for your help.

Rabies immunoglobulin (or other types of immunoglobulin) is not a risk for acquiring HIV.
