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

WFH Humanitarian Aid Program, das Patienten in Entwicklungsländern unterstützt, die kaum oder gar keinen Zugang zu diesen lebenserhaltenden Medikamenten haben und ohne diese schwere Behinderungen erleiden oder versterben würden.

"Mit Project Recovery können wir die Lebensqualität Tausender von Menschen mit Hämophilie auf der ganzen Welt verbessern," so Alain Weill, Vorsitzender der WFH. "Außerdem versetzt es die WFH in die Lage, genau zu planen, wann und wo diese wichtigen Medikamente verteilt werden und sorgt so für einen maximalen Nutzen dieses wunderbaren humanitären Projekts."

Laut Schätzungen können pro Projektjahr mindestens fünf Millionen internationale Einheiten von Faktor VIII gespendet werden. Damit können jährlich rund 5.000 Gelenkblutungen behandelt werden, das häufigste Hämophiliesymptom bei Kindern und Erwachsenen. Ohne diese Behandlung würden Patienten mit solchen Blutungen unter wochenlangen quälenden Schmerzen leiden und langfristig ernsthafte Gelenkschäden davontragen, die zu Verkrüppelungen führen. Zudem wird durch die frühzeitige Behandlung oder Vermeidung dieser Blutungen verhindert, dass Angehörige wie Eltern, Ehepartner oder Geschwister die bewegungsunfähigen Patienten im Krankenhaus oder zu Hause pflegen müssen und deshalb nicht zur Schule oder zur Arbeit gehen können.

Es ist weltweit das erste Mal, dass in einer derartigen Partnerschaft Kryopräzipitat für humanitäre Zwecke zu Faktor VIII verarbeitet wird. Die Verträge über die internationale Zusammenarbeit wurden im Juli 2013 unterzeichnet und die ersten Produktionsschritte sind bereits angelaufen. Die WFH wird die ersten Faktor-VIII-Lieferungen 2014 erhalten.

"Die CHS hat Project Recovery vor mehr als einem Jahrzehnt initiiert," so Craig Upshaw, Vorsitz
