In addition, there was a significantly longer cold ischemia time for allogeneic ICT.
The length of cold ischemia has also been demonstrated to affect graft function.
In kidney recipients with a 0% PRA, the cold ischemia time was shorter and the incidence of delayed graft function was lower in subjects without a pretransplant crossmatch.
Our findings suggest that the degree of HLA mismatching and the duration of cold ischemia are important determinants of the survival of shipped allografts, but the effect of one offsets the effect of the other," the authors wrote.
The recorded variables included the number of HLA-A, HLA-B and HLA-DR mismatches, maximum and most recent titres of panel reactive antibodies, cold ischemia time, age and gender of donor and recipient, and recipient weight and race.
A superior graft outcome with little increase in the duration of cold ischemia justifies national sharing of HLA-matched kidney transplants, according to the results of a study published in the October 12th issue of the New England Journal of Medicine.
Improved outcome of renal transplant as a result of better HLA matching is offset by prolonged cold ischemia times, a finding that adds to the debate over the utility of national sharing of donor kidneys.
Minimizes cold ischemia injury by perfusing the organs with a proprietary warm perfusate
Because of increasing recognition of the importance of cold ischemia time, particularly for organs of marginal quality, the UNOS Liver and Intestinal Organ Transplantation Committee and Pediatric Transplantation Committee anticipate that the size of the distribution unit would be limited to minimize cold ischemia time while providing a median waiting time less than the expected median survival time for any level of disease severity.
Preclinical studies have shown that p53-targeted siRNA can be effective in protecting kidneys from injury due to cold ischemia or lack of oxygen during organ preservation and storage between removal from the donor and implantation.
Indivumed's current tumor biobank of over 8,000 patient-cases, collected with a mean cold ischemia time of less than eight minutes, serves as a resource for Indivumed's internal cancer research in biomarkers and primary cell drug screening as well as for the use of pharmaceutical and biopharma partners through tumor biobank access and a variety of services, such as e.
Indivumed's current tumor biobank of over 6000 patient-cases, collected with a mean cold ischemia time of less than eight minutes, serves as a resource for Indivumed's internal cancer research in biomarkers and primary cell drug screening as well as for the use of pharmaceutical and biopharma partners through tumor biobank access and IHC services.

Oncoscience concentrates on providing better treatments for patients with severe illness, focusing on three major areas: 1) Cancer drug research concentrating on Orphan Drug indications; 2) Tumor tissue banking for diagnosis and long-term storage; 3) Organ transportation for transplantation at room temperature, avoiding cold ischemia.
