Press Guide FOR ACCURATE reporting on the Contaminated Blood Scandal - Factor VIII

DO NOT

  • Do not use images or video of Blood Bags or Blood Transfusions. This has almost nothing to do with the Factor VIII clotting agent and creates confusion and misleads the public, this is the most common mistake. If it's red, stay away.

  • Do not refer to Factor VIII itself as "blood", it isn't. Factor VIII was/is a commercial medicine. Factor VIII is NOT a "blood transfusion".

DO

  • Use images and video of Factor VIII concentrates, which are the "blood products" in question. The product has the appearance of a CLEAR LIQUID in a GLASS BOTTLE.

 

  • Refer back to the fact that one of the steps in making this product is to "pool" or "mix" thousands of PLASMA donations.
