“It’s been long observed that kidneys taken from some black… Genes, not race, determine donor kidney survival   

Obese kidney failure patients receive survival benefit from transplantation

Most obese individuals with kidney failure can prolong their lives by receiving a kidney transplant, although this survival benefit is lower in severely obese individuals. That’s the conclusion of a new study published in the American Journal of Transplantation. The findings will hopefully decrease differences in access to transplantation for obese patients.
