Upstate seeks
recovered COVID-19 patients for emergency clinical trial

Upstate Medical University is seeking recovered COVID-19
patients to donate plasma in an emergency clinical trial to help treat other
patients battling the disease.

If you are 18 years or
older, have tested positive for COVID-19 and are now 14 days out from your
last symptom,
call Upstate
Clinical Trials at 315-464-9869 to arrange a screening appointment

The project is part of the National COVID-19 Convalescent Plasma
Project, approved by the Food and Drug Administration as an Emergency
Investigational New Drug (EIND). The theory is that people who have recovered
from COVID-19 have developed antibodies against the disease that could be given
to a currently infected person to lessen symptoms and speed recovery.

Upstate is working with the American Red Cross on the project.
