What is Pooled Plasma Solvent Detergent Treated

Pooled Plasma Solvent Detergent Treated is a parenteral, solvent/detergent treated ABO blood group-type specific pooled human plasma indicated for the replacement of multiple coagulation factors in patients with acquired deficiencies due to liver disease and those undergoing cardiac surgery or liver transplantation and for plasma exchange in patients with thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP).

It is made from ABO blood group-type specific pooled human plasma, which is frozen to preserve the content of labile coagulation factors.

Solvent/detergent treated, pooled plasma can serve as an alternative to fresh frozen plasma (FFP). Solvent/detergent treated, pooled plasma contains plasma proteins such as albumin, immunoglobulins, other globulins, coagulation factors, complement proteins, and protease inhibitors.

The content and distribution of plasma proteins found in solvent/detergent treated, pooled plasma are similar to reference ranges for healthy donors, with the exceptions of protein S and alpha 2-antiplasmin, which are labile to solvent/detergent treatment and are controlled to ensure concentrations of 0.4 International Units/mL or more.
