    The tissue banking industry is undergoing an “era of opportunity” as the need for supplying the medical field with a variety of regenerative medicine solutions increases. As the regulatory paradigm has evolved, so have days of tissue banks marketing products exclusively regulated as Section 361 Human Cells, Tissues, and Cellular and Tissue-Based Products. In a regulatory world where tissue may be regulated as a Section 361 HCT/P, as a Section 351 HCT/P, or even as a medical device, the requirements for reporting adverse outcomes have never been more confusing to new and existing players in this emerging regulatory space for industry. Join John Mayhall, the Mayor of Regulationville, and Kip Hanks, AATB Director of Regulatory and Governmental Affairs, as we navigate the many regulatory pathways and requirements for human tissue product adverse outcomes reporting.

    Case Series of Self-Inflicted Sodium Nitrite Toxicity in Three Michigan Counties: A Comparison of Scene Investigations, Toxicology, and Autopsy Findings. Sodium nitrite toxicity has become increasingly popular as a means for suicide due to its ease of access within the United States. It is commercially available and used as a food additive, antifreeze admixture, and medically utilized as an antidote for cyanide poisoning. Ingestion of a large amount of sodium nitrite, an odorless, white, and water-soluble crystalline powder, can induce severe methemoglobinemia; a metabolic disorder characterized by the inability of hemoglobin to bind and carry oxygen throughout the body. The presentation highlights eight cases from three different southeast Michigan counties of suicide by sodium nitrite ingestion. The presentation also explores the social aspect in the alarming increase rate of suicide by sodium nitrite ingestion, and the careful considerations forensic pathologists need to be aware of when encountering these cases

    Supporting families before, during, and after donation is a process of continuous and compassionate education. As research becomes a larger part of the donation landscape, it is critical that the professionals who work with donor families be able to fully explain how a gift could be used for research. Rather than letting a donor family envision a vague and perhaps frightening use of their loved one’s gifts, donation professionals can demystify what research is. Knowing the extensive touch to the lives of many and potential discoveries further strengthens a family’s support of donation and pride in the legacy of their loved one.

    The session will be focused on removing stigma from the trans community by helping people understand the trans experience (ie, what is a trans person, and what are their unique lived experiences/health needs). If people don’t know and understand “transness” how can they work on being aware of what to take into consideration.
