Plasma protein therapies are unique, biologic medicines that are either infused or injected to treat a variety of rare, life-threatening, chronic and genetic diseases including bleeding disorders, immune deficiencies, pulmonary disorders, neurological disorders, shock and trauma, liver cirrhosis and infectious diseases such as tetanus, hepatitis and rabies. 


Conditions Treated

Treatment Outcomes

Coagulation factors:

Essential for blood clotting, used to treat genetic bleeding disorders and surgical bleeding.

Bleeding from trauma

Over dosage of anticoagulants

Liver disease

Bleeding Disorders
  • Hemophilia A and B - Disorders that prohibit a person's blood from clotting.
  • Von Willebrand disease - The most common inherited bleeding disorder.
  • Improved quality of life

  • Increased life expectancy


Proteins used to neutralize foreign objects such as bacteria and viruses.

Used to treat primary and secondary immunodeficiencies and autoimmune disorders.
  • Primary - Life threatening genetic defect that compromises immune system.
  • Secondary - Caused by outside factors such as viruses, chemotherapy, other immune deficiencies and auto-immune disorders.

Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (CIDP) - A rare disorder of the peripheral nerves.

Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP) - A bleeding disorder in which the immune system destroys platelets, which are necessary for normal blood clotting.

  • Improved quality of life

  • Increased life expectancy

  • Infection prevention

Hyperimmune Globulins:

Prevention and treatment of specific infections and other foreign bodies.

Rabies, tetanus and hepatitis

Rh negative pregnancy

Liver transplant and surgery

  • Prevention
  • Treatment

  • Protection of babies in utero

Alpha-1 Proteinase Inhibitors:

Protects tissues from enzymes of inflammatory cells.

Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency - Genetic deficiency which may result in life-threatening lung disease in adults and/or liver disease in people of any age.

  • Improved quality of life
  • Halts disease progression


The major plasma protein, regulating blood volume and providing many essential functions.

Cardiac surgery

Liver disease

Severe infections

Emergency and Surgical Medicine - Used to treat shock, severe burns and during surgery.

  • Lifesaving in severe situations

  • Decreased morbidity and mortality

C1-esterase inhibitor (C1-INH):

A protein found in the fluid part of your blood. It controls a protein called C1, which is part of the complement system. This system is a group of proteins that move freely through your bloodstream.

Hereditary angioedema - Rare but potentially life-threatening condition characterized by acute attacks of usually non-itching edema (swelling) of the face, larynx (airway), abdomen and extremeties.

  • Improved quality of life

  • Increased life expectancy
