Article Abstract

The development of plasma-derived factor VIII concentrates

Authors: Peter R. Foster, Ronald V. McIntosh


In his articles on the history of the development of Factor VIII concentrates (1,2), Albert Farrugia referred to our work at the Protein Fractionation Centre (PFC) of the Scottish National Blood Transfusion Service. We would like to provide some additional information on our work, as this may assist those seeking to increase factor VIII yield.
