100-Plus-Year History of Convalescent Plasma


Convalescent Plasma Has Been Used to Treat Diseases in the Past 100 Plus Years  

Health Editor’s Note: While we have been hearing a lot about convalescent plasma during the COVID-19 pandemic, the use of convalescent plasma has been going on since the late 19th century. Over the years convalescent plasma had been used to treat measles, diphtheria, pneumonia, meningitis, plague, scarlet fever, Spanish flu, and other diseases, as well as being used to treat bleeding disorders, immune deficiencies and shock.
