Summary of the PPTA/FDA Liaison Meeting (November 8, 2023)

PDMPs — which are derived from human plasma from healthy donors — are essential for around 300,000 European patients who rely on these therapies to treat a variety of rare, chronic, and potentially life-threatening conditions, which are often genetic in origin. Without these treatments, many patients might not survive or would have a substantially diminished quality of life. In addition, plasma-derived medicines are also used in everyday treatment, such as supportive treatment in trauma cases, liver disease, cardiac surgery, and in some cases, pregnancy complications.
