You are being asked to participate in a study investigating whether blood donors are more likely to donate organs than non-blood donors. The study is conducted by the UCSD School of Medicine and funded by the National Institutes of Health. It should take less than 10 minutes of your time. Although the survey may take place during a blood drive and with the cooperation of the blood bank conducting the drive, blood donation is independent of the study. The only foreseeable risk to you is loss of confidentiality. However, we will not ask for any personal identifying information, and will track your data only through a randomly assigned number. You will not be paid for participation in the study. The only potential benefit for participating in the study is that you may learn about the need for human organs and the process of registration for organ donation. Participation in the study is entirely voluntary, and you must consent to participate by marking the “Yes” box after reading this statement. You may drop out of the study at any time, that is, you do not have to complete the survey. If you have any questions concerning the study, please contact Dr. Gerry Boss at (858) 534-8805 or You may also contact the UCSD Human Research Protections Program office at (858) 455-5050.

High concentration of Azithromycin in infected tissues is also caused by the fact that phagocytes and macrophages transport it to the site of infection and release in the area of inflammation. Azithromycin is prescribed in case of illness or injury at the time.
