Abstract

Breakthroughs in basic and clinical science in solid organ transplantation were presented at the American Transplant Congress 2011. Key areas of presentation included the pathogenesis of late allograft failure, immune regulation and tolerance, pathways in allograft injury, electing appropriate patients for transplantation, determining the best allocation schemes tomaximize effective utilization, organ preservation, monitoring the alloimmune response and immunosuppressive management. In this review, we present highlights of the meeting. These presentations demonstrate the exciting promise in translating from the bench to affect patient care.
