Have you signed up for the free Patient Notification System?
The Patient Notification System (PNS) is a free, confidential, 24 hour service that informs you about withdrawals and recalls of plasma-derived and recombinant therapies. The PNS is led by the Plasma Protein Therapeutics Association (PPTA) and was developed by the manufacturers of plasma therapies with direct input from consumers. To get the notices, you should first register with the Patient Notification System. On the PNS registration webpage you can register, change your registration information; or lookup past notifications. You can choose to be notified by email, telephone, or fax- whichever is most convenient for you.
Visit the PNS website or call the 24-hour, toll-free number (1-888-UPDATE-U) for up-to-date information on therapy recalls or withdrawals. To get the most benefit from the service, you should keep accurate infusion logs and record the lot number, therapy name, and manufacturer for all therapies used.
