Convalescent plasma therapy, according to researchers, may cause more harm than good. Findings showed that plasma therapy was ineffective in reducing the risk of intubation or death. Recipients of the blood product (33%) had significantly more serious adverse events, including increased oxygen requirement and respiratory failure, than those who got standard care (26.4%). Intubation or death occurred among 32.4% of patients treated with plasma, over 28% who did not get it. Also, it was found low or non-functioning antibody levels in donor’s plasma were associated with a greater risk of intubation or death in recipients.
