Study: Organ donation gap isn't due to racial disparity
from By Chelsea Adams
New research in the American Journal of Transplantation shows geographic gaps in organ donation rates are not due to the prevalence of racial or ethnic populations — a common belief among solid organ transplant. Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Kansas looked at data from on all "eligible deaths." Eligible deaths are potential brain-dead organ donors age 70 years or less without any medical conditions that would prevent organ donation.
