Study suggests breakthrough in organ transplants.

 

A small pilot study indicates that following up an imperfectly matched organ transplant with an infusion of the donor's stem cells may free recipients from a lifetime of anti-rejection drugs. Los Angeles Times. 03/08/12.

This is such a wonderful breakthrough for transplants. I know someone who has 100% chimerism a year after a kidney transplant with this process and is on NO anti-rejection medication. How wonderful that would be!!

 

It was very difficult on both her and her donor before the actual transplant and immediately after. What wonderful people to be willing to go through so much, not really knowing the outcome.
