Kidney, Liver Transplant Study for People With HIV
February 28, 2005
This study of kidney and liver transplantation for persons with HIV, by 19 transplant centers with funding from the U.S. National Institutes of Health, is currently running and is open for new people. Even for patients who do not need a transplant immediately but may need one in the future, it can be important to get into the system now to avoid delays if and when a transplant is necessary. Persons with hepatitis C or hepatitis B are not disqualified and will be considered for this study.
