We report case of a 2‐year‐old male patient with EBS diagnosed with stage IV, metastatic HBL successfully treated with multi‐agent chemotherapy while on dialysis whom then underwent a simultaneous liver‐kidney transplant followed by adjuvant chemotherapy. Ultimately, the patient achieved cancer remission with normalization of his renal function. Our report emphasizes that patients with HBL in the setting of EBS will not only require careful kidney function monitoring while receiving chemotherapy, but they might also need to undergo multi‐organ transplantation in order to achieve adequate cancer control and also n...

Authors: Oh D, Kang ES, Yu S, Chun K, Huh W, Jang HR, Cho CW, Lee N, Lee KW, Park H, Park JB, Kim SJ Abstract As the need for the organ donation increases, strategies to increase kidney transplantation (KT) through expanded living donation have become essential. These include kidney paired donation (KPD) programs and desensitization in incompatible transplantations. KPD enables kidney transplant candidates with incompatible living donors to join a registry with other incompatible pairs in order to find potentially compatible living donor. Positive cross match and ABO incompatible transplantation has been successful...

Todd and Lindsey Taylor had barely settled in at home in Syracuse, New York with their new baby, London, when their world turned upside down. London, who had seemed perfectly healthy at birth, woke up nine days later vomiting and struggling to breathe. They rushed her to their local children’s hospital. “The doctors did an ultrasound and found a large blood clot in her aorta that was blocking the flow of blood to her kidneys,” says Todd. “They said she was in near fatal condition when we arrived, but they put her on dialysis and were able to stabilize her.” Desperate for options The doctors in...

Conclusion: Belatacept is a novel costimulation blocker that is devoid of the nephrotoxic properties of CNIs and has been shown to positively impact long-term graft survival and preserve renal allograft function in low-immunologic-risk kidney transplant recipients. Data regarding its use in patients who are broadly sensitized to human leukocyte antigens are scarce, and the increased risk of rejection associated with belatacept has been a deterrent to more widespread use of this immunosuppressive agent. This case serves as an example of a highly sensitized patient that has been successfully converted to a belatacept-based C...

This article describes the state of contemporary evidence regarding use of social media tools and interventions to increase access to living donor transplantation, as reported in peer-reviewed medical literature, as well as programs that have not yet been formally evaluated.SummaryAs social media platforms continue to grow and expand, a commitment to understanding and facilitating the use of social media by the transplant community may support patients who are interested in using social media as a tool to find a living kidney donor.

Purpose: The transition from pediatric to adult medical services is an important time for an adolescent with a renal transplant. Failure to properly transition can lead to medical non-adherence and subsequent loss of graft and/or return to dialysis.
