Not Recommended Treatments


Cryoprecipitate is a blood component made from plasma, containing VWF and factor VIII. It was commonly used to treat VWD in the past. However, because there is no method to kill viruses in cryoprecipitate, it is no longer recommended.

Currently, techniques are being developed to treat cryoprecipitate for viruses. When they are proven effective, cryoprecipitate may once again be used as a treatment for VWD.
