Covid 19 Convalescent Plasma Study   

with Dr. Katharine Bar
June 4, 2020

Convalescent plasma therapy involves the transfusion of plasma collected from a donor who has recovered from Covid-19 to a patient with an active infection. Two recent studies have shown that convalescent plasma therapy can be used in treating critically-ill covid-19 patients. Penn’s recently launched two part study will investigate how convalescent plasma therapy works in moderately and severely ill patients. We are talking to Principal Investigator of the study Dr. Katharine Bar to understand the nuances of the study.

PCOS is an enigmatic disease with the most common symptoms being irregular menstrual cycles and ovulation leading to infertility in many cases. We created a PCOS Tracker, a free app for women to track their PCOS symptoms, and as it completes one year, it has now been downloaded more than 23,000 times by women wanting to track their PCOS Symptoms. We received many questions from PCOS Trackers on irregular periods, periods pain and associated infertility, that were answered in this Q&A session by PCOS expert Dr. Carolyn Alexander of Southern California Reproductive Center and reproductive endocrinologist Dr Aimee Eyvazzadeh of Egg Whisperer Enterprises.
