The creation of both the Donor Selection & Protection Guidelines and the Donor Health Questionnaire was one of the main goals of the Transpose Project team. The two deliverables will be useful and strategic tools to pursue the harmonisation of donor selection and protection policies in Europe and to contribute to the revising process of the current EU Directives.
In this page, you can find the results of two years teamwork and even some examples of the Guidelines application. Following these links, you can consult a synopsis of the donors selection and protection criteria (WP5 D5.3), a report on the development of such criteria (WP5 D5.2) as well as a report about WP6 work, which includes the final version of the Donor Health Questionnaire translated into English, Dutch, French, German, Italian and Spanish (WP6 D6.3). Seven short videos will then show specific selection issues in blood, plasma, stem cells, sperm and oocyte donations.
In this first scenario, we examine the case of a would-be oocyte donor who has a child affected by the down syndrome.
In this video, we have to evaluate the eligibility of a sperm donor who has travelled in an area with an endemic presence of such pathologies as malaria and hepatitis.
In this third case scenario, we have a stem cell donor with a peanut allergy.
The fourth video shows a blood donor who has just undergone a dental treatment.
In this scenario we are dealing with a would-be blood donor that has travelled in a malaria-risk zone.
The following video takes into account a central venous catheter in a stem cells donation case.
In this final video we address the problem of inconsistent response behaviour from a donor.
