Letter to the FDA Nominating Industry Representatives to BPAC – 2/28/08 

28 February 2008

Mr. Donald W. Jehn

Division of Scientific Advisors and Consultants,

Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research,

Food and Drug Administration (HFM-71)

1401 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD  20892

Dear Mr. Jehn,


AABB, American Red Cross, America’s Blood Centers, and Plasma Protein Therapeutics Association wish to nominate Celso Bianco, MD, (primary representative) and Donald Baker, PhD, (alternate representative) to serve on the Blood Products Advisory Committee (BPAC) as an industry representative.


As you know we believe that the issues faced by the blood industry and the plasma industry are too diverse to be adequately represented by one individual on the BPAC. We ask that both representatives be seated for BPAC meetings so that for any particular issue the primary and alternate can decide between themselves who has the best expertise to respond. 


A copy of the curriculum vitae for each nominee is attached.


If you have questions, please contact me at (919) 658-1689, or by email at acarrgreer@aabb.org.  Thank you for your consideration on this important issue.
