The Plasma Protein Therapeutics Association (PPTA) is thrilled to unveil the program for the highly anticipated 2024 International Plasma Protein Congress (IPPC), scheduled to take place from April 16-17 in Athens, Greece. This prestigious Congress promises an array of engaging sessions, thought-provoking discussions, and networking opportunities aimed at advancing strategies to ensure sustained patient access to plasma and plasma-derived medicinal products (PDMPs) while prioritising donor health and safety.  

This year’s Congress has been specifically designed to model the journey from plasma donation, through manufacturing, to finally reaching a patient in need.  

Highlights of the 2024 Congress include:

Inaugural session: The Congress will begin with a powerful conversation between a plasma donor and a patient who receives plasma-derived medicinal products. Together, they will offer a firsthand account and invaluable insights into the nuanced challenges and opportunities surrounding plasma donation and therapy.

  • Real-world evidence on the safety of plasma donation  
  • Recruitment to Retainment: Keeping Donors Dedicated
