Plasma Donation Philippines
The Philippine Red Cross is accepting plasma donations from COVID19 survivors. The Philippine Red Cross convalescent plasma center is located at the PRC-NHQ Port Area in Manila.
Convalescent plasma is a plasma taken from a person who has recovered from SARS-CoV-2 infection and contains neutralizing antibodies against the said infection.
Giving convalescent plasma collected from individuals who have recovered from COVID-19 to infected patients is a form of passive antibody therapy, which could offer a possible therapeutic strategy.
