BiologicTx Paired Donation Aids In Successful Kidney Transplants
Date:7/22/2014

TOTOWA, N.J., July 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- BiologicTx® today announced their participation in Florida's first 3-way Kidney Paired Donation transplant exchange utilizing BiologicTx's proprietary matching software, Matchgrid™. The landmark surgical procedures happened on July 9 at the Miami Transplant Institute, located at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, Fla.

Kidney Paired Donation (KPD) is an option for donor/recipient pairs who are not compatible for kidney transplant with one another due to incompatible blood types or other physical differences.  KPD programs that apply software, like BiologicTx's Matchgrid, are able to identify more compatible matches with other pairs in the software database – pairs that are also incompatible with one another – ultimately increasing the chances of a successful transplant for all pairs involved. 

"One of the challenges of large scale Kidney Paired Donation programs is that an exceedingly large number of the remaining registered recipients waiting for an organ offer are highly sensitized, which is defined as having high antibody levels against their potential donor, thus making them very difficult to match," stated Todd Krasinsky, RN, Chief Development Officer and Co-Founder of BiologicTx. "Through BiologicTx's technology, we not only provide the matching software for donor/recipient pairs on a regional basis but also provide the drug therapies that will potentially lower antibody levels which can increase the chances for a match.  BiologicTx is proud to be a partner of the Miami Transplant Institute's Kidney Paired Donation Program and couldn't be more pleased with the recent successful transplants."
