CoVig-19 Plasma Alliance

GCAM along with our parent company GC Pharma has joined plasma industry leaders in an unprecedented non-profit collaboration called the CoVig-19 Plasma Alliance. The focus of the alliance is accelerating the development of a potential treatment for the Coronavirus(Covid-19).

The plasma that is collected from recovered COVID-19 individuals is called convalescent plasma and contains antibodies to be used in experimental treatments for patients who are experiencing serious complications from COVID-19. The success of this program relies on the participation of survivors of Covid-19. We need your help to get the word out and are working diligently with our partners to make sure we succeed!

Convalescent plasma is collected from healthy individuals who have made a full recovery from COVID-19 and are symptom free for a minimum of 14 days.

To participate in the program, donors must meet the following criteria:

  • Be 18 – 70 years of age
  • Weigh at least 110 pounds
  • Present test results from a nasal or blood test confirming COVID-19
  • Meet the balance of GCAM’s current plasma donor criteria

You are a survivor, now be a HERO and help the CoVIg-19 Plasma Alliance potentially develop a new treatment therapy!
