Delhi govt. gets Centre’s nod to start plasma enrichment technique trial -THE HINDU-17-04-2020
Kejriwal said that the results of these trials would be out in three-four days from now and hoped that the technique would work and that live of critical patients would be saved. “The condition of several COVID-19 patients, who were admitted to hospitals in the last week of March and the first week of April, is improving now and many of them will be discharged in the next three-four days. If plasma technology is used in such cases, it can save lives,” the CM said. The plasma transfusion technology involves taking the blood of a person who has recovered from COVID-19 that has anti-bodies that helped the person recover in the first place.
Plasma is then extracted from the blood, is enriched, and is then injected into an infected person.
