Conditions Treated

Treatment Outcomes

Coagulation factors:

Essential for blood clotting, used to treat genetic bleeding disorders and surgical bleeding.

Bleeding Disorders

Hemophilia A and B - Disorders that prohibit a person's blood from clotting.

Von Willebrand disease - The most common inherited bleeding disorder.

  • Improved quality of life

  • Increased lifespan

Immunoglobulins:

Proteins used to neutralize foreign objects such as bacteria and viruses.

Used to treat primary and secondary immunodeficiencies and neurological disorders.

Immunodeficiencies

Primary - Life threatening genetic defect that compromises immune system.

Secondary - Caused by outside factors such as viruses, chemotherapy, other immune deficiencies and auto-immune disorders.

Chronic Idiopathic Demyelinanting Polyneurophy (CIDP) - A rare disorder of the peripheral nerves.

  • Improved quality of life

  • Increased lifespan

  • Infection prevention

  • Protection of babies in utero
Hyperimmune Globulins:

Rabies, tetanus and hepatitis

Rh negative pregnancy

Liver transplant and surgury

  • Prevention
  • Treatment

Alpha-1 Proteinase Inhibitors:

Protects tissues from enzymes of inflammatory cells.

Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency - Genetic deficiency which may result in life-threatening lung disease in adults and/or liver disease in people of any age.

  • Improved quality of life

  • Halts disease progression

Albumin:

A protein important in regulating blood volume.

Emergency and Surgical Medicine - Used to treat shock, severe burns and during surgery.
