Donate a Kidney Now; Get a Voucher for One Later
Howard Broadman, a lawyer and retired judge from California, knows his grandson, Quinn, will probably one day require a kidney transplant. By the time Quinn needs his help, however, Broadman said he may be dead or too old to donate a healthy organ. "I approached UCLA and asked, 'Why don't I give a kidney to someone who needs it now, then get a voucher for my grandson to use when he needs a transplant in the future?' And that's just what we did," Broadman said in a statement. How the program works Broadman worked with Dr. Jeffrey Veale, a transplant surgeon who helped initiate the program at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medic...

Custom Printed Organs
By David W. Niesel and Norbert K Herzog Arguably, among the most exclusive waiting lists are those for organ transplantation. This is an expensive "do or die" medical procedure with limited availability. In the US, kidney transplant waiting list time wait varies from 5-189 months with only four having times of under twelve months. Consider that every 10 minutes someone is added to an organ waiting list and twenty-one people a day die waiting. Remember one donor can save up to eight lives through multiple organ use. As of 2016, there are 121,527 people on an organ transplant waiting list and in 2015, but only about 15,000 ...

History In Medical Education And The Roots Of Knowledge
This study was originally meant to examine the natural history of syphilis in those who had later stages of the disease. It was begun in a time before penicillin (introduced in 1943) was identified as an effective treatment and when there was considerable controversy about the efficacy of later-stage intervention. However, the study eventually spanned four decades, during which new treatments became available, and the subjects enrolled were often deliberately kept from receiving treatment. Over time, it became clear that subjects were part of a vulnerable population not adequately protected by the study protocol and from ...
