Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease which causes the loss of cartilage, eventually progressing to development of painful bony spurs and cysts in the joints that are affected.
Leukopaks are obtained by a donation process where blood is withdrawn from the donor via leukapheresis utilizing an aphresis machine such as the Spectra Optia.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 Osteoarthritis leukopaks are obtained by aphresis from donors with Osteoarthritis. All of our donors are fully consented and IRB approved.
