Three thousand of them donated plasma twice or more, an absolute record – 15 plasmodaches from one donor.
Over the year, 20,000 Muscovites have become donors of blood plasma with antibodies to coronavirus, thanks to whom the city has procured more than 13 tons of plasma. Transfusion of donor plasma as one of the methods of treatment for COVID-19 has been used in the capital’s hospitals since April last year.
“Moscow became the first Russian city where during the pandemic the use of plasma with antibodies to coronavirus was included in clinical guidelines as part of the comprehensive therapy for COVID-19. In the beginning, 200-300 people became donors per month, and now their number reaches 3-4 thousand per month. During this year, the capital procured more than 13 tons of plasma, 20 thousand people became donors, and three thousand of them donated plasma twice or more, the absolute record is 15 plasmodach from one donor. More than 11,500 patients undergoing treatment with COVID-19 in Moscow hospitals received immune plasma, ”the press service of the Moscow Social Development Complex said.
The plasma treatment method was based on foreign experience and was first applied experimentally. It has proven its effectiveness in practice: with the introduction of donor plasma from people who have had coronavirus infection, the survival rate of patients with a severe course of the disease increased by 19 percent, and the need for transfer to artificial maintenance was halved.
A plasma donor can be a person aged 18 to 55 who has had a coronavirus infection and does not have chronic diseases. He must also have negative tests for HIV, hepatitis B and C.
