Expired Factor Products

One parent asked me what can they do with their expired factor products that they don't want to throw away. Also how far back of it, being expired, for it still be safe for use or be donated. I told them that there are organizations that takes them. I also advised them to talk to their Hemophilia Treatment Center or talk to their doctor for more information. I just wanted to bring up the topic for possible suggestions or discussion.

You can donate it to me. I am 35 years old man with Hemophilia. I live in Egypt where there is no factor. I use old ways to stop my bleed sessions (ice - compression - rest - blood injections - cryo) An American organization donates me some expired factor between now and then and I am so thankful for this.

I feel that expired factor is not as effective as the in-date factor but some expired shots could save my life.

I don't care if it is expired or not very effective as long as I will not stay in bed for weeks till I can walk again.

Please if you really need to donate this expired factor for someone who really needs it, e-mail me and I will be so thankful for your kind help.
