Fascinating. I can’t help but think of a friend who has a rare genetic disorder that required a liver and kidney transplant when he was just a toddler.
His liver is going strong, but his new kidney gave out more than a year ago, and he’s on a waiting list for a transplant, tied down to thrice-weekly dialysis at a clinic, and unable to lead a normal life. He expects to be on a waiting list for years, if he ever qualifies for a kidney at all.
Kidneys transplants are relatively easy to access compared to heart and liver transplants.
Transplants almost on demand would be a game changer for people like my friend.
