LIMINAL BIOSCIENCES COMMENCES COLLECTION OF CONVALESCENT PLASMA FROM COVID-19 RECOVERED DONORS
Prometic Plasma Resources, a subsidiary of Liminal Biosciences Inc., has commenced the collection of convalescent plasma from donors who have recovered from COVID-19.
"Recent published studies have indicated immune globulin and hyperimmune globulin therapy to have the potential to be one of the treatment options for patients with COVID-19. We are proud to be collecting COVID-19 convalescent plasma to be potentially used in the manufacture of hyperimmune immunoglobulins by third parties and be a part of this historic effort which aims to accelerate a reliable, scalable and sustainable option for patients suffering from the impact of COVID-19," stated Kenneth Galbraith, chief executive officer of Liminal Biosciences. "We expect that developing a hyperimmune will require third parties to collect plasma donations from many individuals who have fully recovered from COVID-19, and we encourage anyone who has recovered from COVID-19 without symptoms for 14 days to come forward and donate plasma to this worthy cause."
Individuals interested in donating plasma can visit the nearest licensed plasma collection centre to their location. For more information, visit Prometic Plasma's website.
