A presentation at the Church of Perpetual Life in Hollywood, Florida will discuss breakthroughs in organ transplantation medicine.
Experts in the field believe that replacement of failed cells, tissues, or organs could cause over 30% of all deaths in the United States to be substantially postponedâ€”increasing the chance of living to age 90 by more than 10 times.
Unfortunately, the supply of transplantable organs is much less than the demand. There are long waiting lists of potential organ transplant recipients, most of whom die before an organ becomes available. In the United States, it estimated that only about 2% of the potentially needed organ transplants are carried-out. Even when organs are transplanted, they may be poorly matched to the recipient, requiring immune suppression measures that decrease the quality and quantity of life of the recipient.
Come to the meeting to learn about breakthroughs in transplantation of heart, kidney, liver, lung, and other organs that could save many lives of people who die prematurely because of organ disease or failure.
