Heart and lung transplantation clinical trial results to be announced at ISHLT meeting

More than 2,000 surgeons, scientists, transplant coordinators and nurses from 15 countries will converge April 21-24 for the 24th Annual Meeting and Scientific Session of the International Society for Heart and Lung Transplantation (ISHLT) at the Hilton San Francisco. The meeting will feature advances and emerging technologies in the fields of late stage heart and lung failure, thoracic transplantation, cell transplantation and tissue engineering.

NEW THIS YEAR

For the first time at an ISHLT annual meeting, late-breaking results of high-impact clinical trials will be presented during special plenary sessions. These include:

  • The use of genomic medicine to enhance outcomes in heart transplant recipients
  • Definitive studies of newer distinctive strategies of immunosuppression to decrease rejection rates. Immunosuppression involves the medical suppression of the immune system to prevent organ transplant rejection.
  • The latest information on the impact of novel immunosuppression in tackling coronary artery disease after transplantation using intravascular ultrasound
  • Use of novel drug delivery systems such as inhaled cyclosporine after lung transplantation

The scientific program consists of invited plenary sessions and lectures, in addition to nearly 400 peer-reviewed oral and poster abstract presentations addressing the latest research findings in end-stage thoracic organ failure and transplantation. Topics to be presented include:

  • SARS, West Nile virus and HIV Infectious disease and how they affect thoracic transplantation
  • Latest data from United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) and international organ procurement organizations discussing disparities in organ allocation and use
  • Current perspectives on the emerging role of ventricular assist devices (VADs) as destination therapy (as an alternative to transplantation) and their financial implications
  • New ways of using genetic
