"Project Recovery" verarbeitet ungenutzte Blutprodukte aus kanadischen Blutspenden zu Hämophiliemedikamenten für Entwicklungsländer
Date:9/27/2013

MONTREAL, September 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Zum ersten Mal werden in einem gefeierten Projekt wertvolle überschüssige Proteine aus der Herstellung von Plasmaprodukten kanadischer Blutspender zu Medikamenten verarbeitet, die Tausenden von Hämophiliepatienten in Entwicklungsländern das Leben retten oder Gliedmaßen erhalten.

Hämophilie ist eine unheilbare erbliche Blutgerinnungsstörung, an der weltweit 1 von 10.000 Menschen leidet. Rund 75 % dieser Patienten werden nicht oder nur unzureichend behandelt. Hämophilie ist eine von mehreren Erkrankungen, die die Blutgerinnung beeinträchtigen. Hämophiliepatienten können an längeren inneren Blutungen leiden, die durch scheinbar harmlose Verletzungen ausgelöst werden. Blutungen in Gelenken und Muskeln können starke Schmerzen und Behinderungen verursachen, während Blutungen in wichtigen Organen wie dem Gehirn zum Tode führen können. Hämophilie A (Faktor-VIII-Defizienz) wird mit Faktor VIII behandelt, ein Protein, das für die Blutgerinnung erforderlich ist.

Die World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) wird den Start von Project Recovery in Partnerschaft mit Canadian Blood Services (CBS) und zwei Herstellern von Plasmaprodukten, BIOTEST AG und GRIFOLS, während des WFH Global Forums zur Sicherheit und Bereitstellung von Medikamenten gegen Blutgerinnungsstörungen in Montreal, Kanada, am 26. September offiziell bekanntgeben. Damit wird das humanitäre Hilfsprojekt, das ursprünglich von der Canadian Hemophilia Society (CHS) konzipiert wurde, nach zwölf Jahren Arbeit Realität.

Im Rahmen von Project Recovery wird zuvor entsorgtes Kryopräzipitat kanadischer Blutspender von BIOTEST zu Haemoctin® verarbeitet, ein Faktor-VIII-Konzentrat zur Behandlung von Hämophilie. Verteilt wird das Medikament über das
