Kettering Health Network is now registered with the Mayo Clinic as an Expanded Access site for convalescent plasma treatment for patients in acute care settings with severe COVID-19.
This trial is now open for our physicians to register patients. Dayton’s Community Blood Center (CBC) is accepting plasma donations from recovered COVID-19 patients and processing and storing the plasma for patients eligible to receive the treatment.
Physician Contact: Jeffrey Weinstein, MD; Jeffrey.firstname.lastname@example.org
The protocol requires patient or family member to consent to receiving plasma from someone who has recovered from COVID-19. Only hospitalized patients referred by their health care provider will participate in this protocol.
See attached document for guidelines to identify eligible hospitalized patients to receive convalescent plasma.
