Treatment of transplant kidneys during machine perfusion.

Sarah A Hosgood, Mekhola Hoff, Michael L Nicholson,

The increasing use of donation after circulatory death (DCD) and extended criteria donor (ECD) organs has raised awareness of the need to improve the quality of kidneys for transplantation. Treating kidneys during the preservation interval could improve early and long-term graft function and survival. Dynamic modes of preservation including hypothermic ... Read more >>

Organ utilisation -the next hurdle in transplantation?

James Neuberger, Chris Callaghan,

Non-utilisation of organs from consented deceased donors remains a significant factor in limiting patient access to transplantation. Critical to reducing waste is a clear understanding of why organs are not used: accurate metrics are essential to identify the extent and causes of waste but use of these measures as targets ...

Hypomagnesemia and risk of post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorder in liver transplant recipients.

Parag Mahale, Gregory J Mckenna, Giovanna Saracino, Linda Jennings, Sam M Mbulaiteye, Göran B Klintmalm, Eric A Engels,

Liver recipients have substantial risk of post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorder (PTLD) [1]. Most PTLDs result from uncontrolled replication of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) due to immunosuppressive therapy [1]. A role of magnesium in modulating immune response and in lymphomagenesis is increasingly being recognized [2]. Decreased intracellular magnesium causes impaired T-cell and B-cell ... Read more >>

Brain death (BD) leads to a systemic inflammation associated with the activation of coagulation, which could be related to decreased microcirculatory perfusion. Evidence shows that females exhibit higher platelet aggregability than males. Thus, we investigated sex differences in platelets, coagulation and microcirculatory compromise after BD. BD was induced in male ... Read more >>
