Blood products

Biopharmaceutical products purified from human blood, such as the blood clotting factor VIII used to treat haemophiliacs. (recombinant factor VIII is also on the market.) The term also refers to biopharmaceuticals that act on blood or the cells that make blood. These products are often produced by the cells themselves, but in such tiny amounts that extracting them from blood is impractical, and so they are genetically engineered.
