Plasma makes up the liquid portion of your blood. It contains essential proteins that are responsible for some vital functions in your body such as helping your blood clot and defending your body against infections.
Without enough of any one of these proteins, a person could have or develop a life-threatening illness, such as an immune deficiency, genetic emphysema, hemophilia, rabies or tetanus. Grifols uses plasma proteins to make life-saving medications to treat these, and many other, illnesses.
Producing enough of these life-saving medications takes a substantial amount of plasma. Did you know it can take up to 1,200 donations to help one patient with hemophilia for only one year? We are continually in need of plasma donations to help those in need of plasma-derived medications.
