Disparities in Acceptance of Deceased Donor Kidneys Between the United States and France and Estimated Effects of Increased US Acceptance
Using a new approach based on validated analytical methods and computer simulations, this work revealed that French transplant centres are much more likely to transplant kidneys from older donors than their American counterparts, and that this effectively increases the number of patients transplanted.
"These impressive results could transform transplantation practice in the United States, and significantly improve the health of thousands of American patients with kidney disease," said Dr. Peter Reese, Associate Professor of Medicine and Epidemiology at the University of Pennsylvania. "This study is the first to use real data analysis using algorithmic simulations, thus allowing the comparison of kidney allocation systems between different countries. »
