101 human cadaver kidneys were preserved by means of hypothermic pulsatile perfusion in the Gambro perfusion unit with human albumin as perfusate. Perfusate flow and some biochemical parameters were assessed during perfusion and correlated with renal function after transplantation. There is a good correlation between perfusate flow and recovery of physiological renal function. LDH released to the perfusate as viability test is of limited value: a direct correlation was only found between LDH activity and perfusion time, and LDH activity and ischemia time. Determination of pH and lactic acid level 1 h after beginning of perfusion is without practical value according to our experience. The quality of albumin in perfusion solution influences the immediate graft function.

Allogenic & Autologous Therapies

Allogenic therapies are generated in large batches from unrelated donor tissues such as bone marrow. In contrast, autologous therapies are manufactures as a single lot from the patient being treated. Here is the latest research on allogenic and autologous therapies.
