Every autumn the plasma protein therapeutics industry recognizes the lifesaving contributions of plasma donors during International Plasma Awareness Week (IPAW).
At CSL Behring and CSL Plasma, we appreciate the critical role donors play in ensuring a reliable and secure source of human plasma as worldwide demand continues to rise. We value their donations not just during IPAW (October 9-15), but year-round.
This is because plasma-derived therapies are crucial for patients’ well-being and health, and an appropriate supply of products is absolutely essential and depends on a sufficient supply of collected plasma.
While it can take more than 1,000 plasma donations to treat one adult patient for a year, the current collection system allows for an appropriate supply of product.
