AM21-26: Ethics of Engaging Blood Donors for Cell Therapy (Biotherapy) Collections

Oct 18, 2021 11:15am ‐ Oct 18, 2021 12:15pm

Credits: None available.


The need for cell and biotherapy donors is rising. To help meet this demand, blood centers are working to transition regular blood donors to become cell and biotherapy donors. Human subject protection is an important aspect for the donations. In this session some of the ethical challenges related to this recruitment and process will be presented and discussed. Topics include biotherapy donor informed consent, payment and frequency of donation. An ethicist will lead this discussion for a robust question and answer period.
