Practical Conclusions

  • Ulrich F. Gruber


Pasteurized plasma protein solutions (PPS), albumin and dextran 70 are the best plasma substitutes available today for catastrophy stockpiles. PPS and albumin can be manufactured only in limited quantity, and they are extremely expensive; thus it seems appropriate to stockpile larger quantities of dextran 70 for the needs of the army and civil defence. In times of peace these stores could certainly be used in the civilian sphere.
