"Patients requiring plasma protein therapies have serious diseases and disorders and need to be assured that they will continue to have access to those treatments," said Josh Penrod, Vice President, Source for the Plasma Protein Therapy Association. "The collection of high-quality plasma from dedicated donors, like those in Texas, is a crucial component in the production of these therapies."
