The 2019 Cutting Edge of Transplantation (CEoT) took place between the 21st and the 23rd of February 2019 in Phoenix, USA. This year’s theme was “No size fits all: uncovering the potential of personalized transplantation”.
Their goal for their meeting each year is to see the advancement of individualized care for transplant patients through new algorithms or practices, for the duration of their transplant journey.
That is why, Dr. Alexandre Loupy presented the work of the KTD-innov team with two oral presentations, presenting the advancement of the research and how it could help transplant patients in the future by minimizing rejection risks.
The CEoT is a meeting organized each year since 2013 by the American Society of Transplantation (AST). The organization was founded in 1982 and now counts 3 800 health professionals. Their goal is to promote both the field of transplantation and patient care through research, education, advocacy, and organ donations.
To elucidate the mechanisms of success or failure of a kidney transplant, KTD-innov collects, centralizes and analyses clinical, biological and immunological data from thousands of kidney transplant patients in France.
