Study Shows Machine Perfusion Significantly Improves Transplant Results
Date:12/31/2008

passed 100,000," said Joseph Vassalotti, MD, Chief Medical Officer of the National Kidney Foundation. "Any new method like the one demonstrated in this study, that will help maximize the available organs and potentially reduce the need for re-transplantation, is vitally important for patients and the professionals who care for them."

More than 1.5 million people worldwide suffer from end stage renal disease, for which a kidney transplant is the preferred treatment option. With a continuing global shortage of organs for transplantation, it is important to find ways of increasing not just the number of kidneys available but also the quality of organs for transplantation to improve the long-term outcome for recipients. By improving the quantity and quality of organs for transplant, both improvements in clinical outcomes and cost savings to health systems are likely to occur.

The LifePort provides a sealed, sterile, protected environment where a physiologic solution is gently pumped through the kidney at cold temperatures to minimize damage while the organ is outside the body. The LifePort is lightweight and portable allowing organs to be perfused and evaluated from the time of recovery until transplant. It can travel unaccompanied by land or air, safely transporting the kidneys across town or between states.

About the Machine Preservation Trial

The Machine Preservation Trial was an investigator-driven study, run by an independent Scientific Steering Committee across The Netherlands, Belgium and Germany, with Eurotransplant (an international organ exchange organization) collaborating as study coordinators. The Machine Preservation trial was sponsored by Organ Recovery Systems of Chicago, USA, manufacturers of the LifePort Kidney Transporter.
