A loss of blood volume affects patients in a variety of trauma conditions. Restoration of this lost blood is often a key factor in emergency situations with a long-term favorable outcome.
The therapeutic protein albumin, derived from plasma donated at BioLife Plasma Services, is used in hospitals across the United States to treat trauma and burn victims, as well as patients suffering from shock. BUMINATE is albumin packaged in glass bottles and FLEXBUMIN is albumin packaged in a flexible container.
Once classified as fatal disorders, more than 80 primary immune deficiency disorders affect approximately 500,000 people in the United States. These disorders occur when a part of the body’s immune system is missing or does not function properly. Today, advances in medicine and our understanding of these deficiencies have resulted in the development of immunoglobulins (antibodies) that assist the patient’s immune system in fighting off infection.
Gammagard is a therapeutic derived from plasma donated at BioLife Plasma Services for use in primary immune deficiencies, as well as B-cell Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia and Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura.
PULMONOLOGY DEFICIENCY INFUSION
People with alpha1-antitrypsin deficiency are born with a lack or low levels of a blood protein
called AAT. This protein helps protect lung tissue from damage from enzymes that are released by white blood cells. This condition may result in serious lung disease, resulting in emphysema. Chronic augmentation infusion, ARALAST and GLASSIA, derived from plasma donated at BioLife Plasma Services are used to treat patients with congenital deficiency of alpha1-antitrypsin with clinically evident emphysema.
SURGICAL HEMOSTASIS & TISSUE SEALING
During surgery, the ability to control bleeding quickly helps reduce complications and improve
a patient’s outcome. Increasingly, surgeons are turning to a solution called fibrin sealant,
comprised of human fibrinogen and human thrombin, two components derived from plasma
donated at BioLife Plasma Services. Fibrin sealant is used to replicate the natural blood
