If I register with DKMS, will I automatically be tested for HIV?

When you register with DKMS, we analyze some of your tissue (HLA) characteristics, necessary to find a matching donor for a patient. We do not check for any infections other than cytomegalovirus (CMV). Only when you are found to match a particular patient do we check for specific viruses, such as HIV, hepatitis B and C, however, not every donor will be a match and even if they are, this could be several years after they register.

Registrarte como potencial donante de células madre sanguíneas es lo primero, pero también puedes difundirnos, organizar una campaña o levantar fondos.
