A team of surgeons at NYU Langone Health in New York have transplanted a pig kidney into a human patient without triggering immediate rejection by the recipient’s immune system.

Priority #3: ACCELERATE INNOVATION and expand patient choice. We need to develop future leaders in nephrology who can move the field forward scientifically and serve as advocates for our patients and our specialty.

In a joint statement, the American Society of Nephrology, European Renal Association, and International Society of Nephrology discuss the state of the global nephrology workforce.

Priority #2: TRANSFORM TRANSPLANT and increase access to donor kidneys. If patients understood the benefits of transplantation and the process involved, more would likely accept the opportunity and pursue transplant listing.

ASN joined several other health care professional societies in a meeting with the White House Domestic Policy Council and Office of Public Engagement to discuss clinical labor direct cost issues updates (as announced in the proposed CY 2022 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS) rule) and its potential impact to patient care.

Priority #1: INTERVENE EARLIER to prevent, diagnose, coordinate care, and educate. The scope of early intervention is so expansive that it touches every aspect of kidney health.

Embracing early intervention and emphasizing health over end-stage treatment, ASN's initiative, “We’re United 4 Kidney Health,” is both a roadmap and rallying cry of how, together, we can build the bridge to a new world without kidney diseases.
