SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Since 2008, CDC has collaborated with state and federal agencies, national partners, academicians, public and private health professionals, the transplant field, public health organizations, and other partners to revise and expand the 1994 Guidelines for Preventing Transmission of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) through Transplantation of Human Tissue and Organs (1994 Guideline). The 2011 Draft Guideline updates the previous recommendations for HIV, includes recommendations to reduce disease transmission of HBV and HCV, and addresses issues such as donor risk assessment, donor screening, HBV- and HCV-infected donors and transplantation, recipient informed consent, recipient screening, donor and recipient specimen collection and storage, and tracking and reporting of HIV, HBV, and HCV. As with the 1994 Guideline, the recommendations address adult and pediatric donors who are living or deceased, as well as transplant candidates and recipients. In addition to summarizing current scientific knowledge about solid organ transplant safety, the 2011 Draft Guideline also identifies important gaps in the literature where further research is needed. CDC worked with the University of Pennsylvania’s Health System Center for Evidence-based Practice (CEP) and sought input in each phase of the Draft Guideline’s development from subject matter experts in HIV and hepatitis through formation of a Guideline Expert Panel to develop the new Draft Guideline. CDC also formed a Guideline Review Committee to provide feedback on the Draft Guideline recommendations. Members of the Review Committee included representatives from public health, the regulatory arena, transplant infectious disease experts, and other stakeholders. This new Draft Guideline will not be a federal rule or regulation. Dated: September 13, 2011. Tanja Popovic, Deputy Associate Director for Science, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
