Plasma is a yellow liquid derived from the human body that contains mainly red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. In addition, plasma has substances such as mineral salts, enzymes, hormones and so on. Plasma acts as a means of transportation through the body. For example, it transports various forms of oxygen, hormones, sugars, fats and carbon dioxide. Hospitals often receive plasma through plasma donors. These are (often) volunteers who donate their plasma for various purposes such as scientific research, pharmaceuticals and sick treatments. A plasma donor may donate about 25 liters of plasma per year.
We understand mixing is not just about simply combining raw ingredients
Given the many substances contained in plasma, it offers enormous value for scientific research. When COVID-19 was in full swing, enormous numbers of people who had been cured of Corona donated their plasma with antibodies to various agencies. This allowed new research into a possible cure for the virus to be started.
Plasma is desperately needed for the development of various drugs. For example, the proteins in plasma can protect patients with immune disorders. Drugs made from plasma often target people with immune disorders, muscle disorders and various inflammations. Drugs developed from plasma can sometimes cure more than a hundred different conditions.
Much of all plasma is supplied to Dutch hospitals, among others. These hospitals sometimes use the administration of plasma as standard treatment for their patients. Patients who often qualify for this are those with massive blood loss, burns or clotting disorders.
