Government decision to remove ban on UK-sourced plasma
BPL welcomes the decision made by Government to lift the ban on UK plasma being used for the manufacture of immunoglobulins. BPL is very supportive of this Government initiative which will result in plasma from UK blood donors being used to manufacture life-saving medicines, and will help the UK become self-sufficient in plasma supply.
