Interorganizational Donor History Questionnaire Updated to Include Zika Screening

Posted in :: 2016 Volume I :: Thursday, April 14th, 2016

Several organizations collaborate to create a standardized tool to screen allogeneic hematopoietic progenitor cell (HPC) donors and cord blood donors for communicable disease risk factors in accordance with the requirements of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), FACT, AABB, and the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP). Both the HPC and cord blood questionnaires were recently revised to include recommendations made by the FDA’s Guidance for Industry: “Donor Screening Recommendations to Reduce the Risk of Transmission of Zika Virus by Human Cells, Tissues, and Cellular and Tissue-Based Products.

When implementing the revised questionnaire and related materials, comply with established change control processes, including document control and personnel training. Changes made to the materials are listed in accompanying charts.
