The lung allocation score (LAS) was implemented in the USA in 2005 to ensure a more objective process for allocation of donor lungs and to minimize the effects of geography. This study examines the association between race, gender, and lung transplantation before and after introduction of the LAS, using data from the UNOS database. In […]

Lung transplant donors and recipients are not matched by gender, although the effect of gender combinations on survival and complications post transplantation is not well studied.  This single-centre, retrospective review analyzed 249 adult lung transplant recipients for donor-recipient gender matching with a primary endpoint of mortality.  No effect of gender on mortality was observed with […]

This article uses the SRTR database to examine whether males and female candidates in the US receive deceased donor liver transplant at comparable rates.  They determine that women have markedly lower transplant rates than male candidates, that there are significant geographic differences in this disparity, and that the disparity has worsened in the MELD era.  […]

The authors examined the SRTR and compared solid organ transplant recipients listed as participating in research protocols to those not listed as research participants (PRPs).  They found that there were significant differences between PRPs and non-participants.  This is an ethical issue because it leads to the question of whether all potential subjects get the same […]
