PITTSBURGH (PRWEB) December 15, 2020
One of the biggest worries in organ transplantation is how well the transplant recipient’s body will receive the organ that is donated. The first successful kidney transplant happened back in 1954 when the recipient’s donor was his identical twin. But not everyone is lucky enough to have someone in their lives with such similar genetic makeup.
In the newest episode of Tomorrow’s World Today, field reporter Darieth Chisolm heads to CareDx headquarters where she learns how they focus on the transplant journey of each individual recipient to make sure all transplant recipients receive personalized care specifically for their transplanted organ.
"CareDx is 100% dedicated to transplant patient care, and has driven innovation to improve long term outcomes over the last 20 years. We are at an exciting inflection point as we build comprehensive solutions to enable direct patient engagement and personalized care,” said Peter Maag, Executive Chairman at CareDx.
Chisolm learns about AlloSure, which is CareDx’s noninvasive test measuring organ health and also learns how drones are safely helping to get organs to hospitals.
“AlloSure has revolutionized transplant management, and gives clarity into how the transplanted organ is performing. The majority of transplant centers in the US now use AlloSure to care for their patients, and we are continuing to innovate with multi-modality solutions for better insights,” said Sham Dholakia, MD, SVP of Medical Affairs at CareDx.
