Liver transplant success, and lifting Shanghai’s lockdown

According to a study by Nature Biotechnology, a patient receiving a liver donation stored for three days in a new type of machine that mimics the human body is healthy after one year of surgery.

This technology could significantly increase the number of livers suitable for transplantation, the authors claim, by enabling the donor liver to be preserved for longer than the current standard and available but making it possible for the transplant to repair severely damaged organs. .

Although more research is needed, the team believes the new technology could allow donor liver to be stored safely for up to 12 days before transplantation. If it works, it can increase the likelihood of donor liver treatment with drugs before surgery, expand the availability of liver for patients in need, and potentially save countless lives.
