Tetanus Response

January 19th, 2007 at 09:00 pm

I was asked about the tetanus and the purpose.

All plasma is used to make various life saving medications.

Tetanus Immune Globulin (TIG) is a vaccine that contains tetanus toxin antibodies derived from the plasma of donors previously vaccinated with tetanus toxoid. This vaccine is considered to give "passive immunization," meaning that the antibodies are supplied at the time of immediate need.

Plasma is used to create life-saving therapies for people around the world.

Without these vital plasma-derived medicines and therapies, many patients could not survive certain diseases. Products produced from plasma treat bleeding and breathing disorders, shock, burns, trauma and immune deficiencies.
