Program Description
As the COVID-19 convalescent plasma (CCP) landscape continues to rapidly evolve, AABB invites you to join a discussion about the latest research and how to compare and correlate different assays to high and low titers under the EUA in the US. In addition to hearing from the PI from the recent INFANT study from Argentina, attendees will also learn about other approaches to neutralizing antibody assays and their importance in research and study design. As with all AABB Hot Topic Discussions, there will be an extended Q&A period for the audience to contribute to a panel discussion.

Learning Objectives
After participating in this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  • Discuss key aspects from the recently published INFANT study.
  • Describe approaches to neutralize antibody assays and their importance in research and study design.
  • Identify comparability and correlation of different assays to high and low titers under the EUA in the United States.

Program Sponsors
This program is complimentary to AABB members through the generous support of Creative Testing Solutions and Digi-Trax.
