Factor VIII is a glycoprotein mainly synthesized by the liver. It circulates in the plasma as bound to VWF which protects it from rapid proteolytic degradation.
It is activated by FXa or thrombin in FVIIIa which will complex with FIXa in the presence of phospholipids to activate FX in FXa.
A patient who is deficient in FVIII has hemophilia A.
This plasma is chemically depleted and assayed at less than 1% for the specific factor.
Freezing the plasmas at -80 °C makes it possible to keep the matrix perfectly intact and to avoid reconstitution.
