This month, transplant professionals weigh in on health‐care reform, and what the new law might mean for the field. Also “The AJT Report” takes a close look at what happened to the expanded immunosuppressant coverage provision.
In some cases, an infection may trigger allograft rejection even after putative regulatory tolerance has been established, raising the question: is allograft tolerance ever really stable? See article by Wang et al on page 1524.
Whether to use kidneys from donors with asymptomatic microscopic hematuria necessitates a thoughtful nephrological approach. See article by Kido et al on page 1597.
Not surprisingly, separately funded, supported and incentivized transplant data collection systems are not completely concordant, as illustrated by comparing the SRTR to the A2ALL data. Please see article by Gillespie et al on page 1630.
Overall well‐being and social integration should receive more attention then they currently receive. See article by Dommergues et al on page 1643.
The ideal solution to priority for HCC will require better tools to predict survival benefit from liver transplantation. See article by Washburn et al on page 1652.
Alloantibody is widely accepted as a major cause of acute and chronic rejection in the kidney. Development of consensus criteria in other organ transplants, such as the pancreas and heart will accelerate progress. See article by de Kort et al on page 1669.
The clinical application of xenotransplantation poses immunologic, ethical, and microbiologic challenges. Significant progress has been made in the investigation of each of these areas. Among concerns regarding infectious risks for human xenograft recipients is the identification in swine of...
Thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA) is a severe complication of kidney transplantation that often causes graft failure. TMA may occur de novo, often triggered by immunosuppressive drugs and acute antibody‐mediated rejection, or recur in patients with previous history of hemolytic uremic syndrome...
Infections and TLR signals at the time of transplantation have been shown to prevent the induction of tolerance, but their effect on allografts after tolerance has been established is unclear. We here report that infection with Listeria monocytogenes precipitated the loss of tolerance and the...
