OBJECTIVE To describe trends of primary efficacy and safety outcomes of islet transplantation in type 1 diabetes recipients with severe hypoglycemia from the Collaborative Islet Transplant Registry (CITR) from 1999 to 2010. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS A total of 677 islet transplant-alone or islet-after-kidney recipients with type 1 diabetes in the CITR(More)
The current liver allocation system, introduced in 2002, decreased the importance of waiting time for allocation priorities; the number of active wait-listed candidates and median waiting times were immediately reduced. However, the total number of adult wait-listed candidates has increased since 2002, and median waiting time has increased since 2006.(More)
Fas ligand is believed to mediate immune privilege in a variety of tissues, including the eye, testis, and a subset of tumors. We tested whether expression of Fas ligand on pancreatic islets either following adenoviral or germline gene transfer could confer immune privilege after transplantation. Islets were infected with an adenoviral vector containing the(More)
This article reviews the OPTN/SRTR data collected on kidney and pancreas transplantation during 2003 in the context of trends over the past decade. Overall, the transplant community continued to struggle to meet the increasing demand for kidney and pancreas transplantation. The number of new wait-listed kidney registrants under the age of 50 has remained(More)
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection has been considered an absolute contraindication to solid-organ transplantation. With immune function restoration possible with highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART), we evaluated 24 HIV-positive subjects with end-stage liver disease who were undergoing orthotopic liver transplantation (OLTX) after the(More)
Although the number of candidates on the kidney transplant waiting list at year-end rose from 40 825 to 76 070 (86%) between 1998 and 2007, recent growth principally reflects increases in the number of patients in inactive status. The number of active patients increased by 'only' 4510 between 2002 and 2007, from 44 263 to 48 773. There were 6037 living(More)
PURPOSE We evaluated the indications for and outcome of pre-transplant, concomitant and post-transplant native nephrectomy in patients with end stage polycystic kidney disease (PCKD). MATERIALS AND METHODS The records of 32 patients were retrospectively reviewed using the electronic database at our institution. RESULTS Between January 1992 and December(More)
The applicability of islet transplantation as treatment for type 1 diabetes is limited by renal and islet toxicities of currently available immunosuppressants. We describe a novel immunosuppressive regimen using the antileukocyte functional antigen-1 antibody efalizumab which permits long-term islet allograft survival while reducing the need for(More)
Improvements in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-associated mortality make it difficult to deny transplantation based upon futility. Outcomes in the current management era are unknown. This is a prospective series of liver or kidney transplant recipients with stable HIV disease. Eleven liver and 18 kidney transplant recipients were followed for a median(More)
Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is a controversial indication for liver transplantation (LT) in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected patients because of reportedly poor outcomes. This prospective, multicenter US cohort study compared patient and graft survival for 89 HCV/HIV-coinfected patients and 2 control groups: 235 HCV-monoinfected LT controls and all(More)
