SD

Exposed to, soaked in, or washed in chemicals that remove or inactivate lipid-soluble components from solution. Blood products (e.g., coagulation factor concentrates or fresh frozen plasma) are SD-treated to reduce potential contamination of these products by lipid-enveloped viruses (e.g., hepatitis B, hepatitis C, or HIV).

CAUTION!

Reported complications resulting from the use of SD plasma include clotting in some patients (thromboembolism) and bleeding in others.
