New Kedplasma Centre Officially Opened In Pécs On May 20th

Our new plasma-collection centre in Pécs, Southern Hungary, was officially opened on May 20th. It is the country’s fourth KEDPLASMA centre, joining the ones in Budapest 1 (Inforpark), Budapest 2, and Debrecen. Pécs currently has 15 donor beds, which are expected to  increase to a maximum of 40 in the next three years.

The opening ceremony was attended by members of the medical and scientific communities, and official representatives of the Municipality of Pécs and the Magyar Government.

Péter Hoppál, State Secretary for Culture (Ministry of Human Resources) and Pécs councillor, thanked the company for investing in his city, which boasts a long tradition in the medical field. „This partnership – Hoppál commented – between the institutional, the academic/scientific and business worlds has been decisive in opening the new KEDPLASMA centre in Pécs, which also serves a social purpose and offers support to the many people who are treated with plasma-derived products in Hungary.”

Dr Stephan Walsemann, Managing Director of KEDPLASMA GmbH and Chairman of the European Plasma Alliance (EPA) of the Plasma Protein Therapeutics Association (PPTA), thanked all the existing and potential donors of Pécs, who with their donations play a fundamental role in helping to improve patients’ quality of life. „Hungary is one of the few countries – Dr Walsemann stated – that can be regarded as self-sufficient with regards to plasma donations, industrial plasma processing and the manufacturing of plasma-derived products. A virtuous chain with unfailingly excellent quality standards.”

Professor Gábor Sütő, immunologist and rheumatologist, and Dr Hussain Alizadeh, university professor, underlined the importance of plasma-derived treatments. László Csuja, President of the “Haemophiliacs’ Friends” Patients’ Association, cited „the great ethical value of donation and the highly supportive spirit of Hungarian society, which is far above the international average”.

To mark the end of the ceremony, Gabriella Komlódi, HUMAN BioPlazma LLC Business Unit Plasma Director, spoke about the financial aspect of the investment, and thanked the population of Pécs and the Municipality „for their supportive attitude and for their willingness to cooperate with KEDPLASMA Hungary”.
