Human parvovirus B19 is a frequent contaminant of blood and plasma-derived medicinal products and transmission of this virus has been shown to occur through the administration of contaminated products. Inactivation of the virus has proved difficult and as a consequence, manufacturers of blood products have implemented screening measures to reduce the load of parvovirus B19 in manufacturing plasma pools by the use of nucleic acid amplification techniques (NAT). We present data comparing the… CONTINUE READING
