Disease relevance of Tissue and Organ Procurement


Psychiatry related information on Tissue and Organ Procurement


High impact information on Tissue and Organ Procurement

  • These variables were: cell suspensions versus tissue fragments; incubation with 5-fluoro-2'-deoxyuridine; method of tissue procurement; location in the large bowel; and TLI distribution in different areas of the tumor [5].
  • PURPOSE: Efforts to conclusively establish that human epidermal receptor (HER)-2 overexpression is important to androgen-dependent carcinoma of the prostate (AD-CaP) or to progression to androgen independence (AI-CaP) have failed because of variability in tissue procurement, antibodies, immunostaining procedures, and assessment methods [6].
  • METHODS: Between 1988 and 1999, 117,501 adult kidney transplants were reported to Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network/United Network for Organ Sharing (OPTN/UNOS) [7].
  • As compared to all other high PRA patients within Southeastern Organ Procurement Foundation who were transplanted during the study period, they were more likely to be non-Caucasian, to be less well matched for private HLA-A, B, and DR antigens, and to have waited for a longer time than the other groups [8].
  • Assuming no change is cold ischemia time, the potential number of 0 CREG, 0 DR mm, ABO-compatible transplants that could be achieved when an Organ Procurement Organization had 50-100 patients on their waiting list was calculated [9].

Biological context of Tissue and Organ Procurement

  • The impact of haplotype match (HM), pretransplant transfusions, and cyclosporine use were examined for living-donor renal transplants performed among 49 centers in the South-Eastern Organ Procurement Foundation (SEOPF) from November 1983 to June 1988 with follow-up through March 1989 [10].
  • METHODS AND RESULTS: The incidence of the ACE DD genotype was evaluated in 60 patients with severe PPH compared with two normal control populations, a group of healthy population-based controls (n=158) and subjects found suitable for cardiac organ donation (n=79) [11].

Associations of Tissue and Organ Procurement with chemical compounds

  • Data collected prospectively on 3811 kidney transplants performed between June 1977 and July 1982 with follow-up to July 1984 by the 42 member institutions of the South-Eastern Organ Procurement foundation were analyzed to identify factors associated with graft and patient outcome in patients not receiving cyclosporine [12].
  • Blood samples were drawn at 2-hr intervals from donor referral until organ procurement to analyze glucose, insulin, and C-peptide levels [13].
  • In this report, we describe a case of multiple organ donation from a previously healthy individual who died from poisoning with the long-acting anticoagulant rodenticide, brodifacoum [14].
  • After the elimination of methanol and the correction of metabolic disorders, organ donation was discussed [15].
  • The use of desmopressin during organ procurement is associated with a higher rate of primary non-function of renal allografts [16].
