Seeking Potential Plasma Donors Who Had COVID-19 and are Fully Recovered
MedStar Health is seeking people who have tested positive for COVID-19 and are fully recovered. Patients who have recovered from COVID-19 infection may be able to donate plasma as a potential therapy for patients with serious COVID-19 infections.
Plasma, the liquid portion of the blood, contains blood proteins (antibodies) that can attack the virus. MedStar Health will be conducting a research project using plasma as a treatment for patients who are seriously ill from COVID-19.
If you have had a COVID-19 positive test and have fully recovered and if you are interested in participating or would like to know more about this study, please call 202-877-6290.
