In a comparative study of kidney donors and healthy nondonors who participated in the third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, Muzaale and coauthors found that kidney donors have an increased risk of developing end-stage renal cancer over a median of 7.6 years.
Vora and coauthors investigated whether organ transplantation was the source of rabies virus
exposure in a kidney recipient who died 18 months after transplantation. They then evaluated for and
prevented rabies in other transplant recipients from the same donor. In an Editorial, Kaul discusses
the implications for improving the safety of solid organ transplantation.
