Attention all you aging Vampires: "Creepy Startup Selling Young People's Blood to the Rich Now Accepts PayPal"

Gone are the days of the stereo typical Vampires of yesterday. Bela Legosi (pictured above) was one of Hollywood's most memorable. He along with Vlad the Impaler can now fade away into the background as vampires and vampirism takes on a new face.

Enter Ambrosia. For $8000.00 a liter (that's $12,000 for 2 liters) you too can have the blood of the young.

Image how they will potentially market this new upstart to the affluent crowd. The aging corporate elites, professional athletes, Hollywood types and the fading politicians.

The "Haves" will consume the blood of the "Havenots".

Stranger than fiction-RP

"Creepy Startup Selling Young People's Blood to the Rich Now Accepts PayPal"

A graduate of Stanford University – incubator of such famous blood-linked companies as Theranos – has launched a controversial start-up company, called Ambrosia, that will, for a generous fee, replace the blood of older people with that of younger donors in yet another attempt to conquer aging. Business Insider reported on the company first, while admitting there is little to no evidence that the procedure actually works.

But that hasn’t stopped Amborisa creator Jesse Karmazin, from accepting payments via PayPal for the procedure: he is charging $8,000 for one liter of young blood and $12,000 for two liters. Karmazin, who isn’t a licensed medical practitioner, told reporters last year that he had hoped to open his first clinic in New York City by the end of 2018. New York City has eluded him and instead he has opened locations in places like Los Angeles, San Francisco, Tampa and Houston.

Just like Theranos, the company also performed its own clinical trial to figure out what the effects of blood swapping would be. These results haven’t been made public, but Karmazin has called them “really positive”And despite the fact that there hasn’t been any evidence that it works, Ambrosia is allowed to continue under the FDA‘s approval of blood transfusions.

Further propelling the idea forward is the significant amount of interest it has received. After putting up its first website in September, the company reportedly got 100 inquiries (mostly from very rich people) about how to get the treatment. The company’s chief operating officer at the time has since left the company in January, leaving its founder as its only employee.

As of the fall last year, the company had performed the procedure on about 150 people who ranged in age from 35 to 92. 81% of those people participated in the company’s clinical trial. The trial gave patients one and a half liters of plasma from a donor between the ages of 16 and 25 and was conducted with David Wright, a physician who has his own intravenous blood therapy center in California.

Trial participants paid for their infusions and the metrics recorded in the study have not been publicly released.

“The trial was an investigational study. We saw some interesting things, and we do plan to publish that data. And we want to begin to open clinics where the treatment will be made available,” the company’s COO said… several months before he left.

And while there has been no evidence yet that there is any efficacy, normal blood transfusions still often save lives. When somebody has undergone surgery or been in a traumatic accident, transfusions can be one of the safest life-saving procedures available. Clinicians perform about 14.6 million transfusions per year, which equates to about 40,000 of them happening every day.

Good point MG, Blood donors in my zone get nothing more than a cup of tea and a chocolate biscuit. Donors are motivated to give to help others in dire need, believing they are doing that. I've set the record straight though and said it's mega rich vampires who want the drained plasma from their donation, and they have the money to take it. So far two young people I know will stop donating, because they actually looked it up.

From their website - "Donor plasma is screened rigorously. Potential donors should contact their local blood banks to give blood. We do not work directly with donors themselves." - So the donor will get maybe as much as $50 for their $12,000 worth of plasma.

How much ya wanna bet that the blood donor will get less than a $100 for donating that $12,000 two liter value pack?

Paypal vampire strikes again. Perhaps the blood banks will be privatised some day, to allow vampires pick of the crop.

"from a donor between the ages of 16 and 25"

Years or months?

This is just creepy. It's been going on for a long time, just not out in the open with the convenience of Paypal. This is bordering on Satanic ritual territory. According to Hilary it works best if the blood is adrenalized by terrorizing the kid before draining their blood. How do these customers know that the blood is actually from youngsters? What happens when the demand starts to exceed the supply? Lock up your kids!
