Donate plasma

IVIG (Intravenous Immune Globulin) is a well-accepted treatment for Myositis and other diseases of the immune system. Plasma is a component of blood extracted from approximately 1,000 healthy donors which is used to make IVIG.

Patients with autoimmune diseases, or other conditions where the body’s immune system is not functioning properly, can be helped by IVIG because it appears to regulate an overactive immune system by signaling it to slow down or stop inflammatory processes.

Plasma donors are compensated for their donation by the collection facility. Find plasma donation centers:
