Kidney Transplants Using HCV-Infected Kidneys Proven Safe and Viable

The Waiting List If you are one of the 94,878 people currently on the U.S. kidney transplant waiting list you may be more than interested in a recent Penn Medicine study in conjunction with the National Transplant Registry that found kidneys from donors who are positive for the Hepatitis C virus are making for successful transplants a year after surgery (1).

Honoring the Life of One Organ Donor Recipient With CTFMLA

Back in 2010, I wrote a simple blog post about how organ donors were protected under Connecticut’s FMLA law.  In it, I recount how my father — 25 years prior at that time — donated a kidney to his brother (my uncle).  At the time, I noted that both were well.   On Sunday, October 28, 2018, my uncle passed away after a short illness.   Dr. Allen Schwartz was retired as the Deputy Director of Policy and Enterprise solutions at NYS Office for People with Developmental Disabilities and recently serv...

A mini-guide to Colorado slang

Photo: Ryan Polei A Coloradan will probably tell you that they have no accent. I’ve said this myself. But my state does have some words and sayings that get thrown around regularly which might be confusing for a first-timer.

That’s all that needs to be said, even if the team sometimes looks more like...

California transplant vs. local

You must not be from California. Californian locals have been composting their banana peels for years and are waiting for the rest of you to get your act together. 2.

Progress to regrowing parts of the eyes as rabbit corneas created from stem cells to restore sight in blind rabbits

Biologists led by Kohji Nishida at Osaka University in Japan have discovered a new way to nurture and grow the many separate tissues that make up the human eyeball, and the scientists need only a small sample adult skin to build them all. Using their new method, Nishida's team can grow retinas, corneas, the eye's lens, and more. In a preliminary trial, the Japanese researchers cultured and grew sheathes of rabbit cornea—the transparent cover of the eye— that restored sight in blind rabbi...
