Recruiting Recovering COVID-19 Patients – Hackensack Meridian Health has been approved to recruit recovered and recovering COVID-19 patients to assess their blood and test it for antibodies in response to the virus. These antibodies may help other patients who are infected with COVID-19. Patients with promising antibodies will be asked to come back to donate an additional blood sample which may be helpful for sick COVID-19 patients. This convalescent plasma therapy is still pending approval from the FDA which we hope to receive soon. If you, or someone you know, have recovered or are recovering from COVID-19, you may be eligible to donate. Patients can find the survey here.
