This ground-breaking REMAP-CAP trial, conducted by NHSBT, will test whether convalescent plasma treatment can save lives and shorten intensive care unit stays.
Professor David Menon

Emeritus Senior Investigator, National Institute for Health Research

NHS Blood and Transplant is now collecting convalescent plasma for use in a randomised clinical trial as a potential treatment for COVID-19. We are investigating whether this plasma can improve survival and reduce ventilation and intensive care unit stay in COVID-19 patients. This is an exciting development as there is no proven treatment for COVID-19.
Professor David Roberts

Associate Medical Director, NHS Blood and Transplant

The REMAP-CAP trial has been specifically designed to provide answers about the best treatment options for the most seriously ill with COVID-19. It is fully adaptive, meaning that new treatments can be added as we learn more, the sample size isn’t fixed and it keeps recruiting until it finds that a treatment is better, worse, or the same as another.
Professor Anthony Gordon

NIHR Research Professor and Chief Investigator for REMAP-CAP
