Plasma Donation - Celiac's Sought

Welcome To PPA

Physician's Plasma Alliance is made up of healthcare professionals collecting and distributing specialized blood/plasma and other biological products throughout the world

www.physiciansplasma.com

Follow the link to find out all the diseases they are interested in and more information. I have not written them to ask what the plasma will be used for but since plasma is not used in the treatment of celiac disease it will probably be sold and used in research. I am over 65 so can't be a donor.

I'm not spamming this company, just thought some people might be interested.

It definitely says it's for research. "Even one donation could aid in the researcher's effort of developing more effective testing or finding a cure."

I imagine they need plasma from celiacs who are newly diagnosed and still eating gluten though. There wouldn't be antibodies from folks on a gluten-free diet.

"Once the products are successfully collected, in most cases you will be compensated several hundred dollars for your donation." Wow! Pity they're not looking for Hashmimoto's. I could sell them plenty of auto-antibodies.

I didn't see Celiac on the list. I would think they would only want it if you have active antibodies? Unless they are looking ofr genetic markers?

They do have celiac listed, but don't seem to say anything about active antibodies. Seems like they could have paired celiac up with Crohn's instead of hemophilia.

I suppose if someone contacted them they would say if they need people with active antibodies. I guess we all know how to get active antibodies pretty quickly. Doesn't really seem worth it though.

They do want you to have antibodies so if you are gluten free they will not want your plasma. Also for other diseases if you start treatment, they want your plasma within a few weeks of diagnosis so you will still have antibodies.
