Raccoon Rabies Caused Fatal Transplant Case
2013-07-24 12:41:52

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online An investigation has determined that organ transplantation is the source behind a fatal case of raccoon rabies virus that took place earlier this year. In February of this year, a kidney recipient with no reported exposure to potentially rapid animals died from rabies 19 months after the transplant. About two human rabies deaths are reported in the US every year, and for years all but two cases were associated with bats. Raccoons are...

'It's not fair that where you live so vastly affects your ability to get a transplant' Using the same type of mathematical formulas used to draw political redistricting maps, Johns Hopkins researchers say they have developed a model that would allow for the more equitable allocation of livers from deceased donors for transplantation.

Results demonstrating that a universal stem cell product increases the long-term survival of organ transplants in instances when the cell donor is neither related to the organ donor nor the organ recipient was recently published in STEM CELLS Translational Medicine. The international team of researchers’ approach also appears to alleviate the need for ongoing immune suppression. Durham, NC (PRWEB) July 09, 2013 An international team of researchers published results demonstrating that a...
