The Plasma Protein Therapeutics Association (PPTA) is the trade association and standard setting organization for the world's major producers of plasmaderived and recombinant analog therapies (collectively, "plasma protein therapies"). These therapies are used by more than 1 million people worldwide each year to treat a variety of diseases and serious medical conditions. PPTA members produce over 80 percent of the plasma therapies for the United States market and more than 60 percent worldwide. Some of the critical therapies produced by PPTA members include: blood clotting factors for people with hemophilia, immune globulin intravenous used to prevent infections in people with immune deficiencies and other serious conditions, and alpha1 proteinase inhibitor used to treat people with alpha1antitrypsin deficiency, also known as genetic emphysema.
