Current Issue Highlights
This Month in AJT
Intestinal transplantation remains a challenging procedure, both technically and immunologically. Over the past decade and in contrast to most organs, the number of intestinal transplants performed has steadily declined, reflecting the significance of these challenges and improvements in alternative therapies. Debra Sudan reviews the current, dynamic state of intestinal transplantation on page 1976. Also see the meeting report on page 1992 for recommendations on posttransplant diabetes mellitus. Cover design by Ken North, North Design Group.

The AJT Report
In the midst of sharp criticism of the VA health system, how do VA transplantation services measure up? This month, “The AJT Report” talks to supporters and critics of the system.
