Research Shows Impact of Kidney Injury on Non-Renal Solid Organ Transplant

Research led by a University of Cincinnati (UC) scientist shows the impact of acute kidney injury requiring dialysis (AKI-D) on patients receiving non-renal solid organ transplantation (NRSOT), including cardiac and liver transplantation. Researchers suggest that reducing the frequency of AKI-D diagnoses would improve the health outcomes of NRSOT patients and take less of a financial…

Using Latest Technology, MRI Can Provide ‘One-Stop-Shop’ Method For Evaluating Potential Liver Donors

Leesburg, VA, July 27, 2017—Using the latest techniques, MRI can provide a “one-stop-shop” method for evaluation of potential living liver donors, according to an article published in the July 2017 issue of the American Journal of Roentgenology (AJR). “Conventional evaluation methods, such as selective catheter digital subtraction anglography, ERCP, and liver biopsy, are not only time-consuming…

Nanotechnology helps rewarm fast-frozen donor tissue, enabling long-term viability

A team funded in part by the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) and led by University of Minnesota (UMN) researchers has developed a new method for thawing frozen tissue that may enable long-term storage and subsequent viability of tissues and organs for transplantation. The method, called nanowarming, prevents tissue damage during the rapid thawing process that…
