Research

7-April-2020


 The Hackensack Meridian Health system (HMH) has been approved by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) to recruit recovered, and recovering, COVID-19 patients to assess their blood and test it for antibodies in response to the virus. These antibodies may help other patients who are infected with COVID-19. Patients with promising antibodies will be asked to come back to donate an additional blood sample which may be helpful for sick COVID-19 patients. This convalescent plasma therapy is still pending approval from the FDA which we hope to receive soon.
If you, or someone you know, have recovered or are recovering from COVID-19, you may be eligible to donate. If you are interested, please contact coordinator Anna.Ullrich@hackensackmeridian.org.
