Plasma provides proven therapeutic benefits to both young and mature mammals and can be used as either a treatment or preventative therapy for a wide range of conditions, including:
- Failure of Passive Transfer to newborns (a condition where the newborn fails to absorb the essential antibodies present in its mother's milk, known as colostrum, making the new born completely susceptible to disease and infection)
- Partial Failure of Passive Transfer to newborns (a condition where the newborn ingests some antibodies, in the form of colostrum, but not enough to attain optimum levels in the bloodstream and avoid the onset of infectious disease)
- Gastrointestinal conditions including, diarrhoea, colic, pancreatitis, parvovirus infection, colitis
- Infectious conditions including sepsis, pneumonia and Rhodococcus equi infection (“rattles”)
- Conditions where protein is lost (renal and gastrointestinal)
- Conditions involving an acute phase response including trauma and surgery
