What’s the Best Strategy to Increase Living Kidney Donation?

• There are very few high quality studies on strategies to increase living kidney donation. • From the limited data available, educational interventions directed at potential recipients and their social networks are the most promising.

Antifreeze to Improve Aeroplanes, Ice Cream and Organ Transplants

Stem Cell Transplant Program Celebrates First Year

The University of New Mexico Comprehensive Cancer Center began helping New Mexicans with blood disorders a little more than one year ago. It is the state’s only bone marrow transplant program. The program offers treatment choices for people with lymphoma and myeloma and will expand to help people with other blood disorders.

Routine Hospital Tool Found to Predict Poor Outcomes After Liver Transplantation

A routinely used hospital tool can predict which liver transplant recipients are more likely to do poorly after surgery, according to a study led by Cedars-Sinai. The findings could help doctors identify which patients should receive physical therapy or other targeted interventions to improve their recovery.

Drug Therapy Using Enzyme from Lethal Bacteria Could Significantly Reduce Organ Rejection in Kidney Transplants

An experimental treatment derived from a potentially deadly microorganism may provide lifesaving help for kidney transplant patients, according to an international study led by investigators at Cedars-Sinai. The study found that treating patients with the drug IdeS® before transplantation significantly reduced, and in most cases eliminated, donor-specific antibodies that can cause rejection or failure of the new organ.

US Transplant Centers Frequently Refuse Deceased Donor Kidneys

• From 2007-2012, deceased donor kidneys in the United States were offered a median of 7 times before finally being accepted for transplantation. • Such refusals may have contributed to racial and ethnic disparities that exist in access to transplantation in the United States.
