Blood is a fluid connective tissue consisting of cells and plasma. The plasma occupies 55% of blood, which is rich in immunoglobulins and proteins that have a wide range of applications in the medical field. Utilizing this plasma to tackle various diseases/disorders is called plasma therapy. Health care professionals require basic and quick knowledge of plasma therapy. It was attempted to bring a quick guide about plasma and its effective utilization in tackling deadly diseases. The plasma is being used in several issues like tissue regeneration, wound healing, scar revision, skin rejuvenating effects, alopecia, and now for the coronavirus disease (COVID-19). The Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) has been used to heal wounds and illnesses. The theory behind PRP therapy is that it will induce the body to develop new, healthy cells that facilitate healing. Plasma contains important components like enzymes, antibodies, coagulation factors, albumin proteins, and fibrinogen. As PRP is rich in the proteins and antibodies, it is used for rare chronic therapies and many severe health problems. PRP therapy is gaining attraction by many health professionals as it is a safe, effective, efficient, and easy approach in procuring, preserving, and therapy. This review summarises and highlights the principle, techniques, method of preparation of PRP, convalescent plasma therapy, and plasma-derived therapies for patients with immunodeficiency or infected with infections to fight pathogens and get cured effectively in a short time.
