I would like to ask if there is any evidence that ulcerative colitis is related to immune issues and elevated NK activity.

I have treated many patients with UC and found a strong immune component on their workup. Have you had any issues?

the fact that it flared up with the IVIG means the IVIG was not enough to assist in implantation. The proper thing to do is to test the immune system at the time of the negative test or 4 days after transfer to assess if more IVIG was needed.
