Episode 11 – Interview with Dr. Donald Arnold, lead for the CONCOR-1 trial
Welcome back Rounds Table Listeners!
This week we interview Dr. Donald Arnold, a McMaster University professor and hematologist who is leading the CONCOR-1 trial.
The CONvalescent Plasma for COVID-19 Research Trial (CONCOR-1), is a North American clinical trial designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of COVID-19 convalescent plasma as a therapy for patients with COVID-19 respiratory illness.
It involves collecting plasma containing neutralizing antibodies from individuals who have recovered from the infection and transfusing it to patients with acute COVID-19 infection.
