University of Pittsburgh receives two grants to try to increase organ donation/procurement

uch donors, helping to expand the overall size of the donor pool.

The study also may help to identify the real and perceived obstacles to increasing the number of donors after cardiac death and provide a method that will allow transplant outcomes using organs from these donors to be compared in a more uniform and meaningful fashion.

The researchers will collect data on 500 critically ill intensive-care patients who are undergoing withdrawal from life-sustaining treatment. Participating sites are UPMC (UPMC Presbyterian, UPMC Shadyside and Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh) and the University Hospitals of Cleveland. CORE and the Epidemiology Data Center at the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health are collaborators as well.

According to the United Network for Organ Sharing, there are more than 82,000 patients currently awaiting organ transplants in the United States. In 2002, 6,187 individuals died on the U.S. organ transplant waiting list because the organ they needed was not donated in time.
