from MedPage Today
Fewer children died waiting for organ transplants in the past decade after policy changes to the national organ allocation system, researchers stated. The number of children dying before they could receive a transplant dramatically decreased from 262 to 110 as pediatric transplants increased from 2001 to 2010, stated Dr. Jennifer Workman of the University of Utah School of Medicine in Salt Lake City and colleagues, in Pediatrics.
