      The AJT Report: News and issues that affect organ and tissue transplantation (pages 2865–2866)

      Article first published online: 27 OCT 2012 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1600-6143.2012.04329.x

      Recent studies have shown that African Americans have genetic variants that appear to incrementally increase their risk for ESRD. This month, “The AJT Report” explores the dilemma now facing transplant professionals: Should African American potential live kidney donors be prospectively genotyped and warned about possible associations between genetic background and outcomes? Also this month, “The AJT Report“ checks in on the status of some living donor outcomes research.
