Current Issue Highlights

A central tenet of live donor organ transplantation is to preserve donor health. However, the practice of organ donation continues to change with advances in medical care and a general aging of the population. This has sparked a move to better capture donor outcomes and facilitate evidence-based donation decisions. This month, AJT presents three articles relevant to this movement. Kasiske et al (page 3040) present a view from the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients, detailing a new registry to document organ donor outcomes. Henderson et al (page 3131) examine the generally incomplete compliance with new mandates to document early donor outcomes, and Debra Sudan places these efforts in context in a thoughtful editorial, distinguishing mandated short-term reporting as perhaps separate from actionable assessment of long-term donor outcomes. Also this month, we provide three timely and wide-reaching reviews on palliative care (Wentlandt et al, page 3008), mechanical circulatory support (Cai et al, page 3020) and the proteasome (Eskandari et al, page 3033).

Xenotransplantation: Time to Get Excited?

This month, “The AJT Report” focuses on new efforts and investments warranting a resurgence of interest in xenotransplantation as a way to solve the organ shortage. We also present key results from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine's new donor intervention report.
