Peterborough City Hospital patient from Peakirk with COPD plays vital role in research into Covid-19 plasma treatment

A patient at Peterborough City Hospital has been one of seven who has participated in the most recent Covid-19 plasma research trial.

Graham Elliott, 68, of Peakirk, is one of seven patients at the trust which runs Peterborough City Hospital and Stamford Hospital to receive convalescent plasma as well as the usual standard of care as part of the study.

Convalescent plasma is antibody-rich blood plasma that has been donated by someone who has recovered from Covid-19. The antibodies could help stop the virus spreading in someone who is struggling to develop an immune response.
