    New UK guidelines re XMRV for blood transfusion and tissue transplantation.


    JPAC - Joint United Kingdom (UK) Blood Transfusion and Tissue Transplantation Services Professional Advisory Committee

    http://www.transfusionguidelines.org.uk/dsg/std/guidelines/xm001-xmrv

    XMRV

    Discretionary

    Donors who have been tested positive for XMRV, accept.

    Additional Information
    As there is no evidence that XMRV is implicated in human disease, a positive test is not a bar to donation.

    Reason for Change
    This is a new entry.

    If you are sick, at least in the US, you can't donate blood.

    Whether you tested positive is a moot point, IMHO.:)

    Ah, but in the UK people with ME are only psychologically ill, not physically ill, right?:rolleyes: So that would be no barrier to blood or tissue donation. Sheesh

    pretty sure the question is meant to be "Feeling healthy and well today?", which says nothing about eitiology

    How about, this? "When was the last time you felt well?" You say nothing until the question is asked again and you reply, "Shhhhhhhhh, I'm still counting backwards."

    Or something like that.:D
