Cerus Corporation is a biomedical products company focused in the field of blood safety. The INTERCEPT Blood System is designed to reduce the risk of transfusion-transmitted infection by inactivating a broad range of pathogens such as viruses, bacteria and parasites that may be present in donated blood. INTERCEPT targets nucleic acids thereby inactivating and preventing further replication of established transfusion threats, such as HBV, HCV, HIV, WNV, and bacteria, as well as emerging pathogens such as Chikungunya and dengue. The process also reduces the number of T cells (white blood cells) to a level that lowers the risk or transfusion associated graft versus host disease (TA-GvHD). The INTERCEPT Blood System for platelets and plasma is FDA approved for use in the United States. The INTERCEPT red blood cell system is in clinical development. Learn more >
