Description

COVID-19 convalescent plasma is plasma collected from patients who have acquired and subsequently recovered from COVID-19 and which contains antibodies against the causative agent SARS-CoV-2.2 This investigational COVID-19 treatment is currently available through three main pathways: use in registered clinical trials, use through the expanded access COVID-19 protocol (21 CFR 312.305), and use for single patients through an emergency IND (eIND; 21 CFR 312.310).2

Although there are no formal clinical trial results for the safety or efficacy of COVID-19 convalescent plasma, early results from 5000 patients under the FDA expanded access program suggest that convalescent plasma transfusion in COVID-19 patients is safe.1
