Current Issue Highlights
Survival after liver transplantation is dependent on immediate graft function, which in turn is heavily impacted by organ preservation during cold storage. This month, AJT features a report from the European Liver Transplant Registry that shows significant differences in patient survival based on preservation solution use, with marked differential survival in settings that involve prolonged cold ischemic times or split liver grafts. See the article by Adam et al and an accompanying editorial by Zoe Stewart. Also see the What's Hot, What's New Basic Science and Clinical Science reports from the World Transplant Congress.

Simple Steps Can Safeguard Against Ebola Transmission through Organ Donation
Published on 12/15/14
While serious infections can be transmitted from donated organs, the risk of passing Ebola virus disease from an organ donor to a recipient is extremely small. In a new editorial published in the American Journal of Transplantation, experts explain how simple assessments of donors can help ensure that the organ supply is safe, while having little impact on the donor pool.
