Kidney disease ends here.



No kidney left behind: reviving kidneys for transplant

New research suggests it could now be possible to revive and recondition kidneys for transplant that might otherwise be discarded.

Around 5,000 people in the UK are waiting for a kidney transplant, but only 3,200 transplants happen each year. The research being done at Newcastle University, led by Dr Emily Thompson, could one day improve the number and quality of donated kidneys.
