PBS140: new competition in the organ preservation market?
Jamieson RW., Friend PJ.
PBS140 offers good cold preservation in renal transplantation and now, crucially, has been shown to promote immediate function following warm ischemia. For a new cold preservation solution to compete with UW solution, improved efficacy and lower price may not be enough. Reducing rates of delayed graft function in organs from non-heart-beating and marginal donors might be the key.
