FDA moves to ease rules for blood donations from gay men MATTHEW PERRONE | AP Health Writer WASHINGTON — The U.S.

has moved to further ease restrictions on blood donations from gay and bisexual men and other groups that typically face higher risks of HIV.

The Food and Drug Administration on Jan. 27 announced draft guidelines that would do away with the current three-month abstinence requirement for donations from men who have sex with men.

Instead, all potential donors would be screened with a new questionnaire that evaluates their individual risks for HIV based on sexual behavior, recent partners and other factors.
