Plasma, pale yellow in color, is the component of the blood. It acts as a medium of transportation for the blood cells and other components. It carries salts and enzymes along with water and also transports nutrients, hormones, and other substances to the different parts of the body. Plasma contains immunoglobulins, clotting factors, albumin, and other components that can be used for the treatment of various diseases. The separation of plasma from the blood is done by a process known as plasmapheresis. Plasma therapeutics are utilized in the treatment of rare, life-threatening, chronic, and genetic diseases, such as immune deficiencies, pulmonary disorders, neurological disorders, shock and trauma, liver cirrhosis, and infectious diseases such as tetanus, hepatitis, and rabies.
