A family member has been diagnosed with classical Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (cCJD). Can I donate?

Generally, no. Donors with a family member who has or has had classical Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (cCJD) usually can’t donate, but it may be possible based on an assessment of your situation. Please contact us to talk about your eligibility to donate. This only applies to classical CJD, not variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (vCJD).
