Click for Full Details: www.gov.ukThe Advisory Committee on the Safety of Blood, Tissues and Organs (SaBTO) reviewed evidence including the outcomes of transplants in the UK of organs from donors who had cancer or a history of cancer.
They drew up a series of recommendations, and categorised a number of cancers according to their risk of transmission to the recipient of an organ transplant.
SaBTO’s findings and recommendations will help transplant surgeons to decide whether transplanting a particular organ would be in their patient’s best interests. It could enable surgeons and patients to use with confidence some organs they might otherwise hesitate to accept.
