Donate Plasma, Save A Life, NDTV's Special Campaign

Plasma Therapy involves taking antibodies from the blood of a person who has recovered from COVID-19 and then transfusing antibodies into a patient to kickstart the immune system. The immune system produces antibodies to fight infection and sufficient antibodies can help the person recover.

 

Plasma therapy aims at building a sick person's immunity, wherein, antibodies are transferred from healthy to the sick person. Convalescent plasma is referred to as the liquid part of blood. The therapy involves transferring plasma from blood to fight the disease. 

 

To Donate plasma and save a life, write to us at donors@ndtv.com or call us at +91-9910668811
