Oh, positive: Antiquated blood ban may soon face its letting

by Jeremy Hooper

The Food & Drug Administration is starting the review process intended to lead to an end to the policy prohibiting gay and bisexual men from donating blood, according to the Federal Register.

A notice published Thursday states the Department of Health & Human Services has scheduled a meeting next month of the Advisory Committee on Blood Safety & Availability to discuss the issue.
