Current Issue Highlights
This month, AJT focuses on liver transplantation and its associated biology. Some highlights include a superb Comprehensive Review of the immune structural anatomy of the liver from Demetris et al, new advances in liver xenotransplantation from Navarro-Alvarez et al, and first-in-man experience using a novel ex vivo normothermic perfusion device from Ravikumar et al. These articles are accompanied by numerous other important contributions examining technical aspects of liver surgery and liver transplant outcomes, to bring the reader up to date with the many advances in contemporary liver transplantation.

The AJT Report
New research has found wide variability in transplant center acceptance of livers for the highest ranked, sickest patients. This month, we look at new performance metrics that researchers suggest should include acceptance behavior. Also this month, we look at Wiley’s new Transplant Peer Review Network and the Living Donor Protection Act introduced in Congress earlier this year.
