Israel Penn Registry marks 3,000 consults for transplant care providers
Date:6/23/2010

rom Penn's and others' published works, IPITTR staff are able to provide more than 400 consultations a year for transplant caregivers.

Information provided by the IPITTR is not intended to be the sole basis for treatment, but rather to complement the physician's own knowledge and judgment.

"Transplant physicians and coordinators are very appreciative of the service," says Rita Alloway, PharmD, director of transplant clinical research at UC. "It allows them to reach data on thousands of patients in a timely manner with one call or e-mail. For some malignancies, clinicians may see a similar case once in their careers. Access to the IPITTR provides the clinician with insight to additional cases around the world to facilitate the care of the individual patient."

"IPITTR is really one of the go-to resources in transplantation," says Ron Shapiro, MD, director of the kidney, pancreas and islet transplant program at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Thomas E. Starzl Transplantation Institute. "A lot of questions in transplantation haven't been answered in randomized controlled trials and they never will be. So you're relying on clinical judgment. The registry is an irreplaceable resource in making those decisions."

For researchers, IPITTR holds data available for descriptive reports, multi-variate analyses and clinical trials and produces publications analyzing that data for the transplant community.

Alloway says the work would not be possible without the IPITTR staff manning the registry, answering near daily consultation requests. "Our staff, Tara Peterson and Mike Alonzo, MD, have greatly improved the service component of the registry. Dr. Woodle also fields many calls from transplant surgeons who have identified an unexpected potential malignancy during surgery. The ability to speak directly to another expert surgeon is paramount to the transplant team and ultimately all patients impacted."
