octaplas®LG

 

octaplas®LG, Solvent/Detergent Treated Fresh Frozen Plasma 

A pharmaceutically licensed, solvent/detergent treated, prion reduced human plasma for transfusion, with standardised coagulation factor content.  It is used in the same way as normal fresh frozen plasma:

  • if a person’s blood is not clotting normally due to a blood transfusion or liver failure
  • in emergency situations if specific clotting substances are not available
  • to treat overdosage of oral anticoagulants, when rapid reversal of anticoagulant effects is required, in combination with intravenous vitamin K and a prothrombin complex concentrate.

  • to treat a disease known as Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura, where the amount of special blood cells (called platelets) is abnormally low
  • to treat bleeding within the body as a result of intensive plasma exchange procedures to restore the balance between clotting substances in the blood.

 

octaplasLG® is only available on a doctor's prescription.
