Mayo Clinic To Offer Kidney And Pancreas Transplants To People With HIV


The Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida, announced yesterday that it will begin offering kidney and pancreas transplants to HIV-positive patients with end-stage kidney disease and diabetes…“With the utilization of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) to control HIV disease, it is very clear that solid organ transplant is both feasible and successful [in people with HIV],” said Dr. Mary Prendergast, a kidney specialist at the Mayo Clinic, in a press release.
