Convalescent plasma to treat COVID-19

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

In this issue of Blood, Hegerova et al report on a study of 20 hospitalized patients with severe or critical coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) who were transfused with convalescent plasma (CP); the authors suggest a favorable, albeit modest, benefit as compared with 20 matched (ie, non-transfused) controls, particularly when transfusion was undertaken within the first 7 days of hospitalization.
