MOSCOW, April 10 (Itar-Tass) — The State Duma lower house of the Russian parliament on Tuesday will discuss in the first reading the draft of a new basic law "On Donorship of Blood and its Components".
The government-presente document establishes the rigths of the donor and the patient and introduces blood donorship basic termininology describing such notions as "donorship of blood and its components", "blood donor", "blood service", "quality of donor blood", and the "end product of blood".
To ensure the safety of the donated blood and its components, the Cabinet of Ministers suggests establishing an integrated state automated databank on blood and its components. The databank will keep information on the amount of donated, stored and processed blood, its components and blood reserves with the indication of a blood group and Rhesus factor, blood transfusions effected, and other information on persons with revealed contraindications.
The reason given by the drafters of the bill is that it is essential to adopt a new law in view of the fact that the old one does not reflect modern transfusion medicine achievements or international blood donorship standards.
