Study weighs benefits of preserving organs at body temperature
from By Chelsea Adams
For decades, donated organs have been submerged in a cold solution simply called "UW liquid" — because it was developed at the University of Wisconsin — while en route to a recipient. It's been the gold standard for organ transportation for years. Now, a new method of preserving organs is being studied, and an organ recipient recently became the first in the country to receive a liver preserved at body temperature instead of cold storage.
