KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa., Jan. 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- CSL Behring, a global leader in the plasma protein biotherapies industry and a subsidiary of CSL Limited (ASX:CSL), has awarded advocacy grants totaling almost $100,000 to six patient organizations through the Local Empowerment for Advocacy Development (LEAD) program.

"CSL Behring is pleased to recognize and support these organizations, all of which play a vital role in expanding patient access to information and healthcare," said Dennis Jackman, Senior Vice President, Public Affairs, CSL Behring. "We hope these grants will help improve the lives of people with bleeding disorders, immune deficiencies and hereditary angioedema."

The following organizations were awarded CSL Behring LEAD grants:

The Hemophilia Foundation of Maryland (HFM), Parkville, MDHFM received a LEAD grant from CSL Behring to support its legislative initiatives for Maryland Bleeding Disorders Standards of Care. The Foundation is looking to build upon its success from the previous legislative session when the bill was first introduced.

"In 2010 our small but proactive bleeding disorders community championed the introduction of the Hemophilia Standards of Care Act (Health Insurance Coverage for the Treatment of Bleeding Disorders)," said Executive Director Emma Miller-Clark. "The LEAD grant will enable us to pick up where we left off in 2010 and provide funding to continue HFM Maryland Days and educate future advocates.  Thank you CSL Behring for bringing us one step closer to passage of the Hemophilia Standards of Care Act!"
