Grifols Study Suggests Repeated Plasmapheresis May Reduce "Bad" LDL Cholesterol Levels While Increasing "Good" HDL Cholesterol Levels in Some Individuals
Date:3/14/2012

nd no significant adverse events were observed.

Significant variables in the study included age, gender, weight, and race; the recommended base levels of cholesterol per the American Heart Association (totals of LDL and HDL); the time interval between donations; the number of donations made by each donor, and; potential changes in lifestyle (reviewed at the time of each donation using prior questionnaires).

About plasmapheresis
Plasmapheresis is a technique used to separate plasma from the remaining blood components such as red blood cells, platelets and other cells, which are immediately injected back into the donor at the time of the donation.  Returning the remaining blood components to the donor facilitates a more rapid recovery and replenishment of the blood when compared to whole blood donations.  The plasmapheresis method was first reported in the scientific literature by Dr. J. A. Grifols Lucas, who presented his findings at the International Transfusion Congress held in Lisbon in 1951.

Today plasmapheresis is performed at Grifols' 147 plasma donor centers across the U.S.  Operated under names BiomatUSA, PlasmaCare and Talecris Plasma Resources, thousands of qualified donors make more than 6.6 million donations per year – equivalent to 24,000 donations per day.  Every donation is analyzed using FDA-licensed protocols to maximize the quality and safety of the plasma for use as the starting material in the production of plasma-derived therapies.  Testing and analysis also enables Grifols to obtain and study important clinical and biochemical data with the donors' consent.
