  1. A proposal for improved cadaver kidney allocation.

    Article - En anglais

    The allocation of cadaver kidneys for transplantation should have two objectives: a fair distribution of kidneys among the waiting recipients and a high success rate.

    Currently, organ exchange organizations are following mainly a policy of success oriented allocation in that the kidneys are distributed according to the best achievable HLA match.

    A consequence of this policy is that patients with rare HLA phenotypes experience prolonged waiting times and that there are large kidney exchange imbalances among transplant centers.

    Based on theoretical considerations, we described previously the selection routine COMB which was aimed at decreasing excessive waiting times.
