      The AJT Report News and issues that affect organ and tissue transplantation (pages 509–510)

      SUE PONDROM

      Article first published online: 9 FEB 2012 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1600-6143.2012.04017.x

      Many in the transplant community fear that a guideline proposed by the CDC designed to regulate the possibility of transmitting HIV, HBV and HCV through solid-organ transplantation will severely restrict organ availability, inadvertently worsening the overall outcome for transplant recipients.
