KERALA PLASMA THERAPY

 

Kerala is not easing its level of preparedness or its efforts to stay ahead of the virus even when it is clear that the progression of COVID-19 epidemic in the State is currently well below the case progression graphs.

  • Kerala has once again gone a step ahead and won Indian Council of Medical Research’s (ICMR) approval for the clinical protocol exploring the feasibility of an experimental therapy –  convalescent plasma transfusion.
  • This may be administered to severe COVID-19 patients.
  • Convalescent plasma therapy is not new and have been used by doctors to treat critically ill patients during earlier epidemics too, during H1N1, SARS and Ebola.
  • Plasma from the blood of previously infected yet healthy individuals had been transferred to five critically ill patients in China on ventilators and their condition had steadily improved and were discharged.
  • When reports that HIV antivirals (lopinavir/ritonavir) might be potentially useful in treating COVID-19 patients, then too Kerala had sought ICMR’s early clearance.
  • CP therapy shows a potential therapeutic effect and low risk in the treatment of severe COVID-19 patients.
