What is Plasma Therapy ? Initial reports of Plasma Therapy trial show promise, says Arvind Kejriwal

People who have recovered from covid-19 should donate plasma as initial reports of plasma therapy on those who are very ill look promising, Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal said at a virtual press conference on Friday.

The therapy requires drawing blood from patients who have recovered from covid-19 and using the plasma and antibodies from that blood on patients who are suffering. Unlike blood donation, only the plasma is drawn from the blood. Doctors involved in the trial said they use the therapy on patients who have gone to the second stage of the disease, in which lungs are affected.

The Delhi government had last week got permission from the Centre to conduct a limited trial of plasma therapy on serious patients.
As such, the trial is being conducted only at the Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Narayan (LNJP) Hospital in the national capital and only four patients have received plasma till Thursday. The state government will now reach out to the central government to extend the trial to all hospitals in Delhi to treat such patients.

“Our efforts are in two directions. One is prevention and detection, while the other is to reduce the deaths that are happening because of the disease. Around 10 days ago, we got permission to hold a trial to conduct plasma therapy on serious patients. We have conducted the trial on four patients in LNJP and the response so far has been positive," Kejriwal said.
