Blood donation clinical trials
« on: October 18, 2014, 12:45:11 pm »
I'm new to this forum and would like to know if I could be of any help to anyone.
All over the news is the talk about how blood donations from that good Doctor who had been cleared of Ebola virus are being used in hope of curing others that are infected. According to the news , only the people with matching blood types could potentially benefit from this treatment.

I have been tested for Hep C and my results came back as Positive for Antibody and Negative for the RNA test. I also have O Negative blood type which makes me a universal donor.

My Doctor tells me I had Hep C at one point but my immune system naturally defeated it.

Having lost a good friend to this terrible disease I would gladly participate in any trials that may need my blood when all else fails.

I don't know where to ask for information other than here but i want to help someone if I can.

Please let me know if there is any interest in this.

Tim
