An overview of disparities and interventions in pediatric kidney transplantation worldwide

, : An overview of disparities and interventions in pediatric kidney transplantation worldwide. Pediatric Nephrology 30(7): 1077-1086

Despite the stated goals of the transplant community and the majority of organ allocation systems, persistent racial disparities in pediatric kidney transplantation exist throughout the world. These disparities are evident in both living and deceased donor kidney transplantation and are independent of any clinical differences between racial groups. The reasons for these persistent disparities are multifactorial, reflecting both patient and provider barriers to care. In this review, we examine the most current findings regarding disparities in pediatric kidney transplantation and consider interventions which may help reduce those disparities.

Epidermal growth factor receptor variant III (EGFRvIII), the most common EGFR mutation, is associated with cell migration of glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) cases; however, the mechanism has not been elucidated. In this study, we found that the EGFR...
