Here is My Question:
Can I donate plasma?
Ultimately, you would need to call the company collecting plasma donations to confirm your eligibility.
Having MS is not a disqualifier; however, some MS treatments may mean you cannot donate. Some patients on biologic medications for rheumatologic disease (that targets the immune system) have been barred from donation by some repositories. Chances are you will be able to donate, but you will need to go through an intake exam with the organization collecting the plasma. Calling ahead and asking this question would be advised.
