The Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center is looking for plasma donors who recently recovered from COVID-19 to help treat others with the infection.
The Food and Drug Administration announced last week that it will be facilitating convalescent plasma therapy, a possible treatment for COVID-19.
Under the therapy, convalescent plasma containing antibodies, is taken from donors who have recently recovered from COVID-19 to help fight the infection in others.
Qualified donors must have a positive test for COVID-19 and be fully recovered for at least 14 days.
According to the FDA, it is not known if convalescent plasma will be an effective treatment against COVID-19 and the treatment is being investigated.
