What Is Plasma Used For

Saving Lives

Donating plasma helps save and improve the lives of thousands of people around the world.

Your donation helps patients who need plasma-derived biotherapies to improve or save their lives. Those in need are suffering from life-threatening conditions such as hemophilia, immune deficiencies, and other blood disorders.

Plasma is the essential ingredient in many medications and treatments. Only plasma donors can provide this vital material, it cannot be synthetically created or produced in a laboratory.

Prometic Life Sciences currently is conducting clinical research of a new therapeutic plasma protein, plasminogen and Intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG). Plasminogen is a naturally occurring blood protein. Activated plasminogen, plasmin, is a fundamental component of the fibrinolytic (blood clotting) system and is the main enzyme involved in the lysis of blood clots and clearance of extravasated fibrin. Plasminogen is therefore vital in wound healing, cell migration, tissue remodeling, angiogenesis and embryogenesis. Currently, indications being pursued for Plasminogen include: Plasminogen Deficiency, Plasminogen Wound Healing and Plasminogen – Acquired Plasminogen Deficiencies

IVIG is a preparation of antibodies purified from plasma donations from healthy individuals. It is indicated for the maintenance treatment of patients who have primary immunodeficiencies (PID) as well as a number of other indications.

Donate plasma today and give someone the chance to live a happier and healthier life.
