FDA Grant for Houston’s Plasma Transfusion to Stimulate Market

Houston Methodist Hospital, the flagship hospital of Houston Methodist announced that it became the first in the United States to treat COVID-19 through blood plasma transfusion. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) gave clearance to Houston Methodist to became the first academic medical center to transfuse donated blood plasma from a fully recovered COVID-19 patient into an infected person. The plasma therapy is called convalescent serum therapy that will help in the fight against coronavirus. The antibodies found in plasma can facilitate the immune system to eradicate foreign substances in the body, such as bacteria and viruses. The soaring infection rates and death tools have compelled the FDA to take swift actions in favor of plasma transfusion. In addition, the growing success rate of blood transfusion will consequently spur demand among patients, in turn, accelerating the growth of the market.
