Clinical Study

COVID-19 Plasma study to limit complications from coronavirus

This research is being done to develop a possible new therapy for prevention and treatment of coronavirus disease (COVID-19).We would like to study whether human plasma containing antibodies to the SARS- CoV-2 virus could be an option for prevention and treatment of COVID-19. This type of treatment, known as passive antibody therapy, could be a way of rapidly treating patients when there are sufficient numbers of people who have recovered from infection and can donate antibody-containing plasma. We hope that it will either prevent illness caused by coronavirus or lessen the severity of symptoms.

I AM INTERESTED
