Gender Plays Role in Kidney Transplant Outcomes
Date:7/4/2008

gens can no longer be ignored in the setting of solid-organ transplantation. A lot of work still needs to be done on the actual antigens and the immunological responses that might be associated with rejection. However, the science is still too premature to suggest that allocation schemes from dead donors or selection of living donors for transplantation take notice of this effect, in view of the good long-term success with sex-mismatched allografts and the limited access to organs," Dr. Connie L Davis, from the division of nephrology and transplantation at the University of Washington, Seattle, wrote in an accompanying comment.
