      The AJT Report: News and issues that affect organ and tissue transplantation (pages 1965–1966)

      SUE PONDROM

      Article first published online: 27 JUL 2012 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1600-6143.2012.04216.x

      An artificial pancreas that would automatically monitor and respond to blood glucose would be life altering for insulin-dependent diabetics. While past safety concerns have stalled FDA approval for clinical trials, development now appears to be progressing again. Also this month, a look at the surge in organ donor designations through the Facebook “Donate Life America” initiative.

      LITERATURE Watch: Implications for transplantation (page 1967)

      MARIA-LUISA ALEGRE, JONATHAN S. BROMBERG and Jonathan S. Bromberg

      Article first published online: 27 JUL 2012 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1600-6143.2012.04217.x

      Several new reports further the understanding of the role of commensal microbes in reducing and shaping the T cell receptor repertoire of intestinal induced regulatory T cells, which in turn prevent inflammation at environmental interfaces, providing knowledge that may relate to the optimal care of transplant patients.

      Can the Government Ban Organ Sale? Recent Court Challenges and the Future of US Law on Selling Human Organs and Other Tissue (pages 1983–1987)

      Article first published online: 17 MAY 2012 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1600-6143.2012.04092.x

      This article uses the recent decision of the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in Flynn v. Holder, which upholds the National Organ Transplant Act of 1984 from a constitutional challenge but finds it inapplicable to “peripheral blood stem cells” obtained through apheresis, to better understand the history and future trajectory of the laws governing the selling of human organs and tissues.

      Low-Dose Rapamycin Treatment Increases the Ability of Human Regulatory T Cells to Inhibit Transplant Arteriosclerosis In Vivo (pages 2008–2016)

      The authors show that adjunctive low-dose rapamycin therapy potentiates the ability of ex vivo expanded human regulatory T cells to inhibit allograft rejection in a humanized mouse model of arterial transplantation, and further demonstrate that this effect is mediated by suppression of T cell proliferation and induction of CD4+ cell apoptosis.
