Have you been diagnosed with having APS? We are currently looking for candidates to participate in a plasmapheresis program designed for patients with this disorder/diagnosis. Participants are needed to donate plasma that is being used to create reagents/controls for the very test kit(s) that were used in your diagnosis.
Plasma is a crucial part of the manufacturing of the most up to date test kits to ensure that when hospitals, healthcare providers and laboratories are testing patients they can do so in a timely fashion. Your plasma is needed to help researchers in the quest for better testing and research into the disease.
Participants who participate are compensated for their time and donation and you can earn $300-$500 each time you donate and you can safely donate 2x per week. If we have to travel you to a location all travel related expenses are paid by us and you still earn your compensation for each visit at your visit.
Plasma is the clear, straw-colored liquid portion of blood that remains after red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets and other cellular components are removed. It is the single largest component of human blood, comprising about 55 percent, and contains water, salts, enzymes, antibodies and other proteins.
Composed of 90% water, plasma is a transporting medium for cells and a variety of substances vital to the human body.
Plasma carries out a variety of functions in the body, including clotting blood, fighting diseases and other critical functions.
Source plasma is plasma that is collected from healthy, voluntary donors through a process called plasmapheresis and is used exclusively for further manufacturing into final therapies (fractionation). Source plasma donors may be compensated for their time and effort.
Recovered plasma is collected through whole blood donation in which plasma is separated from its cellular components. Recovered plasma may be used for fractionation
Importance of Donation
Only a small number of people living in the U.S. who are eligible to donate blood or source plasma actually donate. What’s important is that we encourage all forms of donation from those who are eligible, so that they may contribute life-saving blood and source plasma to those in need.
Specialty types of Donations
Specialty types of donations are also needed to assist the Research and Diagnostic communities come up with positive controls for test kits. Some centers have special licenses with the FDA to allow those with otherwise deferral conditions to still donate while helping others. Without these “specialty” donations the very test kits that are available currently run the risk of going on back order making it harder for your healthcare provider, clinic or hospital to do the necessary testing to conclude a proper diagnosis and begin treatment. These donations are done the same way as “normal” healthy donors, but your plasma would not be being used for transfusion but for research.
Do you or has someone you know just been diagnosed with “active” Mono? If so we have a plasma donation program for you. Your plasma is needed for further research and for validations for test kits to diagnose other patients. Plasma is a crucial component in the test kits and is needed to ensure that the latest and greatest test kits are available when doctors are testing their patients.
Participants can safely donate plasma 2x per week and earn $200 per donation for their time/donation.
* Must be 16-65 years in age
* Must weigh at least 110lbs or more
* Must have copies or access to your lab test results showing “active” mono
* Should have been diagnosed in the last 7-10 days
* MUST BE,HIV, HCV and HBV negative
Do you or someone you know have “acute” symptomatic Hepatitis B? If so we are looking for participants to participate in a plasmapheresis program to hel
p others as well as research. Plasma is a crucial component in the manufacturing and validations of the very test kit that was used to diagnose you or your friend or family member.
Participants who qualify are able to donate plasma up to 2x per week and continue donating until their antibodies drop off to a level that no longer qualifies. Each time you donate you will be compensated up to $500 a donation. If travel is required to get you to the center we pay all travel related expenses to get you there and home and you still earn your compensation for your participation.
Must have been diagnosed by a licensed doctor, hospital or clinic
Must be HIV/HCV Negative *** NO CO INFECTIONS ***
Must be 18-65 Years in age and weigh at least 110lbs or more
Must have or have access to lab results showing your acute infection
Do you have you or does someone you know just been diagnosed with “active” Lyme disease? If so we need patients to donate their plasma to help others. Participants who qualify and participate can earn $200-$500 each time they donate and you can safely donate 2x per week.
To qualify you must be considered positive by CDC standards. You must have a positive screen/EIA as well as the confirmatory Western Blot test performed.
1. Must have “official” hospital or physician diagnosis
2. Must have copies of your blood test results or access to them (EIA & Western Blot)
3. Must be 18-65 years of age
4. Must be 110 lbs or more
5. Must be Negative for HIV/HCV/HBV
We are currently looking for patients who have the conditions listed below to participate in our specialty plasma donor programs. Plasma is a crucial component in the manufacturing of test kits, those very kits what were used in your diagnosis. These programs are done in licensed FDA facilities, and with plasma you can donate safely 2x in a 7 day period since you are only donating the plasma component of the whole blood.
We are looking for donors who not only have the diagnosis but those who have high levels of antibodies. The current programs and minimum antibody levels we need currently. To learn more visit us a http://www.accessclinical.com.
New York state plans to pay a pharmaceutical company up to $24 million as it researches tick-borne diseases like Lyme disease.
The state Wadsworth Center Laboratory and Regeneron Pharmaceuticals are teaming up to better detect and treat these illnesses.

Tick-borne diseases, especially Lyme disease, are among the fastest growing infectious diseases in the United States.
The tests for Lyme disease have been mostly unchanged for the past 40 years and sometimes give false negative results. When diagnosed correctly and treated, most Lyme disease patients recover within two weeks.
Over the course of five years, Regeneron will invest up to $48 million in this research and the state will reimburse 50 percent of Regeneron’s research costs.
JEFFERSON COUNTY, Ohio — The Jefferson County Health Department is reporting that Ohio has seen a surge of hepatitis A infections.
Local pharmacies like Rite Aid in Steubenville are now offering Hepatitis A vaccines. The liver disease is relatively rare, but health department data shows the reported cases of hepatitis A has already surpassed all of last year’s cases.
“As of this morning, we have more than 80 cases in the state of Ohio,” said Annette Stewart of the Jefferson County Health Department. “All of last year, we had a total 45 for one year’s time. So, that is quite an increase.”
The disease is transmissible through contaminated food and bodily fluids, but not through skin contact. The health department said gay men are particularly at risk.
If you have been diagnosed as having hepatitis A, you can help others. we have a research program for those diagnosed with Hepatitis A to donate plasma that is used in IVD/Research and for controls for test kits. Participants can earn up to $500 each time they donate and you can safely donate 2x per 7 days. If we don’t have a center near you we coordinate all of your travel to get you to the center to participate and you still earn your donation payments as well.
MUST be HIV/HCV/HBV negative-no co-infections
Must be 18-65 years in age and weigh at least 110lbs or more
Must have, or have access to your lab results showing your hepatitis panel/liver function panel
Do you have anticardiolipin/antiphospholipid syndrome? Do you want to help the IVD/research community? We need patients with this diagnosis to participate by donating plasma that is being used in the IVD and research communities to help diagnose other patients. Plasma is a vital component in the manufacturing of the very test kits that were used in aiding in your diagnosis. Without participants like you these vital kits run the risk of going on back order and may not be available to physicians when they are needed to diagnose others.
Participants are compensated for their time (and travel) for their participation. If we do not have a center that is convenient to your location we book and pre-pay all of your travel related expenses to enable you to participate in the program and you still earn your compensation for doing so. Participants can earn $200-$500 per donation and you can safely donate twice in a 7 day period (compensation dependent on titer).
