On average, people on the transplant waiting list wait more than   2.5 years for a new kidney, because there aren’t enough kidneys available for transplant.

With funding from Kidney Research UK, Professor Mike Nicholson, Dr Sarah Hosgood and their team at the University of Cambridge have been able to develop a pioneering technique called ‘warm perfusion’. Here, the donor kidney is connected to a machine that flushes the organ with oxygenated blood before it is transplanted. This flushing process revives and repairs the kidney, helping to prime it to give it the best chance of transplant success. It also allows the health of the kidney to be tested. Perfusion could make many more donor kidneys available in the future.

Right now, the team are half way through their clinical trial of 400 patients at four transplant centres.

We hope to see warm perfusion being used across the UK within the next five years.

 

Please help fund even more amazing research, like the warm perfusion trials
