Bangkok, Apr. 26 – “Mo Yong” explains his doubts about plasma treatment of COVID patients. Not useful – the virus is mutated. According to the data, more than 120 patients who received the treatment were satisfactory. Invite the missing people to donate because they are almost exhausted.
Prof. Dr. Yong Phu Worawan or “Mo Yong” Head of the Center of Specialization in Clinical Virology Department of Pediatrics Faculty of Medicine Chulalongkorn University Post on Facebook Yong Poovorawan about COVID-19, plasma therapy from recovered patients. Knowledge is constantly changing.
Plasma from more than 120 covid patients has now been used to treat covid patients in new outbreaks and cycles until existing plasma is nearing the depletion. Therefore would like to invite those who have disappeared and are ready to donate Especially men
Many people misunderstand, causing many people to ask questions. Asked if the plasma was given to the recovered patient. It didn’t benefit in any way, isn’t it? There is a research study.
I would like to answer that yes, it has been researched. That is a good research study Published in the world’s leading journal NEJM, Pasta in Severe Patients Giving is no different from not giving. Plasma treatments in this report Everyone agrees if the patient is severely intubated. There is no use at all to provide plasma.
The author of this work was published on social media, misleading many. But did not read further that It is studied in the same journal. Plasma delivery at risk Like the elderly People with underlying disease and give early, since the onset of pneumonia. It was found to prevent the progression of the disease from worsening. Make the patient reduce intubation intubation And reduce the mortality rate
Later there was another study. In the same journal, the use of plasma was found to have a high level of immunity. Will benefit, especially immunity 1: 320 and higher
Therefore, in the plasma collection of the National Blood Center. We therefore select only those who have high immunity according to the above criteria. To provide the user with maximum benefit based on scientific evidence.
Later it was published on social media in our home again. That giving plasma would cause the virus to mutate
Therefore, I would like to clarify that vaccination and plasma immunity that occurred. Play a role in the pressure of the virus to allow the virus to become true, whether it is a vaccine-induced immunity Or immunity in the plasma Viruses will adjust to avoid that immunity. It’s something that can happen naturally.
So I would like to clarify that I would like to feel comfortable in giving Plasma in the hospital. Or wards Take care of the spread of the disease. Not to be attached to others already Like prevention as well as protection against drug-resistant infections
While the patient is in treatment, there are both drugs and products that can make the virus evade. But when the patient is in the hospital Even with a mutated virus Happened in the hospital Will occur in that patient Until the patient is cured The virus was gone until it returned home or died. Viruses will not have a chance to spread to others at all. The outbreak of new species will not happen at all. In hospitalized patients Therefore want to be at ease
Emerging knowledge is dynamic all the time. Accurate tracking And must think critically Will be of great benefit to society
So now in the plasma donation program We will have a test for the level of immunity. Of those who will donate We will only accept donations to those with high immunity. And to apply, we recommend it for early stage patients who have had at least 2 or more pneumonia sites and or have begun to have hypoxia 94% or less. Do not wait until the patient has entered a crisis such as respiratory failure. Will make the treatment ineffective
According to the treatment data, there are now more than 120 patients receiving the treatment symptoms are satisfactory. Waiting to analyze all results And the wishes of the treating doctor Would like to have such a pass Because which is compared with the drug used to treat It is much cheaper, even though the plasma is biological. National Blood Center There are measures for the safety of the plasma that is used according to international standards. .- Thai News Agency
