Join Now and Help COVID-19 Patients Recover Faster
Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). Individuals who have recovered from COVID-19 develop proteins called “antibodies” that can block SARS-CoV-2 infection. These antibodies are present in the part of the blood called “plasma”.
The U.S Food and Administration (FDA) has authorized the transfusion of convalescent plasma with high antibody levels to treat hospitalized COVID-19 individuals early in the disease course, and those who are immunocompromised and cannot produce adequate antibodies.
We are looking for COVID-19 convalescent volunteers in the state of California to be screened for eligibility who are willing to donate blood to support our research efforts.
With your help, we will better understand the immune response to COVID-19 infection.
