Around the world, patients rely on plasma-derived therapies (PDTs) for treatment. These treatments — critical, life-transforming medicines — focus on rare and complex diseases such as immunodeficiencies, bleeding disorders and more.

For over 80 years, Takeda has been at the forefront of taking on the challenge of making these treatments a reality.

What makes plasma-derived therapies possible? It starts with thousands of plasma donations that undergo a rigorous manufacturing process. This process can take 7-11 months as the plasma from donated blood is purified, extracted and integrated into a finished product. Throughout this process, the health and safety of both donors and patients is always put first.
