Brief Summary:
This is an expanded access program providing COVID-19 convalescent plasma to patients hospitalized with severely or life-threateningly ill COVID-19.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
COVID-19 SARS-CoV 2 SARS-CoV Infection Biological: COVID-19 Convalescent Plasma

Detailed Description:
This expanded access program provides hospitalized patients who are severely or life-threateningly ill with COVID-19 access to investigational COVID-19 convalescent plasma (CCP). A clinical team comprised of Infectious Disease specialists, Pulmonary/Critical Care specialists and Hospitalists identify appropriate patients in accordance with FDA recommendations for patient eligibility and the daily availability of ABO-compatible CCP. CCP is obtained through New York Blood Center and American Red Cross in coordination with the University Hospital Blood Bank. Safety outcomes include monitoring for transfusion-related acute lung injury (TRALI), transfusion-associated circulatory overload (TACO) and any allergic reactions.Patients admitted to our institution prior to the availability of CCP will be separately reviewed.
