Donor Sperm Providers Form New Non-Profit
Date:10/15/2009

Prototype Anonymous Donor Database In Development

FAIRFAX, Va., Oct. 15 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Four of America's leading donor sperm providers have formed a new, non-profit association, the Association of Gamete Donor Providers (AGDP). AGDP will help donor gamete providers to share information and services, enhance educational programs and promulgate policies and activities to benefit individuals and organizations involved in all aspects of building families with the help of donor gametes. AGDP's founders and initial funders include: California Cryobank; Cryobiology, Inc; Fairfax Cryobank and Xytex.

AGDP has approved and started development of a database prototype to track anonymous sperm donors. This is the first combined effort by donor sperm providers to establish a prototype database. AGDP is creating the database prototype as a public service.

The prototype may be the first step towards establishing a permanent gamete donor registry that will be donated to an independent group to further develop and manage to meet the possible expanded needs of a working registry.

The long term expectation of the AGDP is that all FDA registered gamete donor organizations will participate in this effort. Information about membership in the AGDP will be available in the near future.
