Survey seeks feedback on new measures of transplant success

For over three decades transplant programs have been assessed on outcome measures that focus primarily on risk-adjusted graft and patient survival at one year following transplant. Similarly the approval of new immunosuppressive agents by the FDA is based upon the rates of patient death, graft loss, and acute rejection in the first year following transplantation.

Recent discussions have opened the door to new definitions of transplant success. The Split Rock Group, a study group formed by AST, is conducting a survey to assess the extent that the community believes this is useful as well as to determine if you believe there are other outcome measures that may be important for the current practice of transplantation.

Participate in the survey.
