DONATE PLASMA: SAVE LIVES
A New COVID-19 Public Trial in California

We are currently seeking both recovered COVID-19 survivors and current patients to join our study on whether and how convalescent plasma can help the COVID-19 pandemic.

What Is Convalescent Plasma?

Plasma is the liquid part of blood and contains antibodies that can help fight viral infections. Individuals who have recovered from COVID-19 infection develop antibodies against the virus SARS-CoV-2 that causes the disease.

Convalescent plasma is being investigated for the treatment of COVID-19 because there is no approved treatment for this disease, and there are preliminary reports suggesting it might help COVID-19 patients recover.

Understanding antibodies brings us closer to helping patients recover faster.

By donating blood or plasma, you will help gain information which may be of significant value for patient management in future epidemic seasons.

Enrolling your patient helps us unlock important clinical outcomes for COVID-19.

By helping us analyze the plasma you infuse in COVID-19 patients and blood samples from COVID-19 patients before and after infusion, you will help the scientific community understand if and how convalescent plasma can help patients.

Ultimately, it may help identify biomarkers that can predict which convalescent individuals are “super donors” who can save lives.
