We encourage TTS members to review and promote this program to patients, families and educators to help teach young people about organ donation. It can be especially helpful for parents of younger transplant recipients to help teach their child and their peers about the importance of donation. Ultimately, our goal is to see this type of program in use in classrooms world-wide. The pilot program has been developed for English speaking Canadian youth. New versions can be built on the initial program and can be developed according to regional and cultural needs.
Feedback is welcomed. As well, those who are interested in working with TTS to disseminate this program to as many students as possible. Please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are delighted to open this website to share selected plenaries and lectures from the 17th Congress of Asian Society of Transplantation (CAST) 2021 for the benefit of AST and TTS members here in Asia and beyond. It has been a long goal of our society to create an educational and training platform that would benefit the members and trainee-fellows.
In recent years, AST has seen rising engagements and vibrant activities in mutually interested areas such as the Asian Transplant Registry (ASTREG), Women In Transplantation (WIT) and COVID-19 Transplant Registry, along with regional collaborations with the Vitallink Korea.
AST will continue to provide educational opportunities to its members and promote participation in regional and international collaborations to enhance the science and practice of organ donation and transplantation, especially in Asia. We invite everyone of you to support this endeavour and welcome any ideas or contributions to enhance this initiative further.
Our sincere appreciation goes to all the 17th CAST 2021 speakers who had generously agreed to make their lecture available on this platform , and to Dr. Marcelo Cantarovich and his TTS Technologies team, lead by Mr. Roberto Colarusso, for making this possible.
This will be the first WIT event related to the careers of women specifically involved in donation. Presentations will highlight their career trajectories (e.g., how they became interested in the field, how it fits into their larger view of their work and essential issues that they think are important.)
This virtual event will include an overview of the Women in Transplantation initiative and several short presentations from Women in Donation (personal stories about experiences, challenges, opportunities), followed by open discussion and Q and A.
The ITS Meeting 2022 is intended to provide in-depth, cutting-edge talks from leading experts addressing challenges that arise from connecting basic fundamental to translational science in transplantation.
The programme will embrace round table discussions with patients, abstract presentations, keynote lectures and more.
Abstract Submissions closes on 10/01/2022
Early Registration fee deadline is 15/03/2022
The TTS-ILTS Paired Transplant Centers Program is a collaboration between The Transplantation Society (TTS) and the International Liver Transplantation Society (ILTS) supporting new liver transplant programs in emerging economies.
This study examined blood samples collected in the first weeks of the pandemic from nearly 60 UK health-care workers. All worked in hospitals, putting them at high risk of contracting COVID-19, but never tested positive or produced any antibodies to the virus for four months after enrolling in the study.
This study shows that viral load decline in COVID-19 correlates with Natural Killer (NK) cell status and that NK cells can control SARS-CoV-2 replication by recognizing infected target cells. In severe COVID-19, NK cells show remarkable defects in virus control, cytokine production and cell-mediated cytotoxicity despite high expression of cytotoxic effector molecules.
