The Katharine Dormandy Coagulation Research Plasma Bank

The Katharine Dormandy Coagulation Research Plasma Bank is a collection of blood samples that can be used in research to better understand blood coagulation or clotting. Instead of collecting samples from patients for individual projects, the plasma bank enables us to create a ‘library’ of samples from patients with different types of problems with their blood clotting. The Haemophilia Centre at the Royal Free Hospital is a centre of excellence and sees large numbers of patients with both inherited and acquired coagulation disorders affecting the process by which blood forms a clot. The plasma bank allows on-going research into the underlying causes of these disorders, tests to allow the prediction of the severity of the disorder, tailoring treatment to individual patients and validation of new laboratory tests. All projects will have been approved by a panel of experts. Results of the research performed will be presented at national and international conferences and submitted for publication in appropriate journals. The aim of all research is to be able to provide the best care possible to patients with clotting disorders.
