MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS LEUKOPAK
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic disease that is often progressive. The disease is characterized by damage to the central nervous system. This includes the brain, spinal cord and the optic nerve. MS can cause numbness, severe fatigue, blurred vision and impaired speech and impaired muscular coordination.
Leukopaks are obtained by a donation process where blood is withdrawn from the donor via leukapheresis utilizing an aphresis machine such as the Spectra Optia. The donor’s white blood cells are selectively collected and the remaining blood is reinfused to the body.
PPA's fresh Multiple Sclerosis leukopaks are obtained by aphresis from donors with Multiple Sclerosis. All of our donors are fully consented and IRB approved.
