Scandia Transplant Kidney Exchange Program (STEP) takes its first steps

Here's a timely story of gift giving from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Karolinska University Hospital in Sweden:

Karolinska University Hospital part of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first kidney transplant program across Scandinavia – Scandia Transplant Kidney Exchange Program (STEP)
MON, DEC 23, 2019

"For cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first time two kidney replacements have been performed involving donors and transplant patients who are part of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Scandinavian kidney exchange program STEP organized by Scandiatransplant.  The organization coordinates organ donations and transplants in Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. During 2018 and 2019 Karolinska University Hospital performed and coordinated three STEP exchange programs with a total of six couples in cooperation with ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r hospitals in Sweden.
...
"Both kidney replacements performed during cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 autumn  involved two couples and  two ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r university hospitals in Scandinavia, says Lars Wennberg, Chief Physician and Patient Flow Manager Kidney Transplant at Theme Trauma and Reparative Medicine Karolinska University Hospital"

"STEP enables exchange of kidneys between medically accepted but immunologically incompatible donor-recipient pairs. A donor who wants to help a relative that needs a kidney donates anonymously to anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r unknown person in need of a kidney. In exchange, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 next of kin receives a kidney from anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r recipient's kidney donor. Kidney changes can take place between two or more participating couples.

"Today, a total of 2261 people in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 six countries that are included in STEP are waiting for a new kidney compared with 2208 in 2018. The ability to carry out kidney changes between cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 different countries means that we can shorten waiting times says Bo-Göran Ericzon, Chairman of Scandiatransplant and Professor of Transplantation Surgery Theme Trauma and Reparative Medicine Karolinska University Hospital.

"The necessary database to investigate immunological compatibility has been developed by Scandiatransplant, while cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 matching algorithm has been developed by Professor Tommy Andersson at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Department of Economics, Lund University in collaboration with Karolinska University Hospital."

Kidney exchange looks imminent in Sweden

Dagens Medicin (Today's Medicine) has cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 story:

Nytt koncept ska ge fler en ny njure
Snart startar ett nytt utbytesprogram av njurar som sträcker sig över hela Sverige. 
(GT: New concept will give more a new kidney
Soon a new kidney replacement program will start all over Sweden.)

"The exchange program has shown good results in ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r countries, so expectations are high, says Per Lindnér, Senior Assistant and Operations Manager at Transplant Center at Sahlgrenska University Hospital in Gocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365nburg.

"He is one of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 initiators of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first Swedish renal exchange program. It can easily be described as a database matching system that couples potential donors and recipients within renal donation.
...
"Today, all of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 country's centers for kidney transplants participate, that is, Sahlgrenska University Hospital, Karolinska University Hospital, Academic Hospital and Skåne University Hospital.

- Even hospitals in Norway and Denmark want to connect. But cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 idea is to start nationally and expand over time, "says Per Lindnér.
...
"The idea of ​​a national exchange program was born three years ago when Per Lindnér visited a seminar with Tommy Andersson, professor of discreet macá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365matics at Lund University.

Tommy Andersson talked about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 macá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365matical background of an American renal exchange program created by Alvin Roth, former winner of Sveriges Riksbank's award in economics, to Alfred Nobel's memory.

When Per Lindnér wanted to introduce cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 same concept in Sweden, Tommy Andersson contributed with his knowledge, which forms cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 basis for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 program."

Rethinking school competition in Sweden

There are calls for reforming Sweden's system of competition and school choice among lightly-regulated private schools. The Guardian has cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 story: Sweden urged to rethink parents' choice over schools after education decline--OECD recommends comprehensive reform including revised school choice arrangements and more effective regulation

"Sweden has been urged to halt cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 steep decline in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 international ranking of its schools by taking action to limit parents’ and pupils’ right to choose.
report from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development(OECD) recommends “a comprehensive education reform” to restore cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Swedish system to its previous standards.
"Andreas Schleicher, director of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 OECD’s education directorate, was scathing about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 country’s “disappointing” performance, saying he had once viewed Sweden as “cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 model for education”.
“It was in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 early 2000s that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Swedish school system somehow seems to have lost its soul,” he said at a press conference in Stockholm. “Schools began to compete no longer on delivering superior quality but on offering shiny school buildings in shopping centres, and I think that’s cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 issue we are really seeing.”
"The call for “revised school choice arrangements” will have resonance in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 UK, where cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 coalition government’s programme to launch free schools funded by public money was in part inspired by Sweden.
"Since cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 1990s, Sweden has allowed privately run schools to compete with public schools for government funds. Critics on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 left blame cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 voucher system for declining results, saying it has opened cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 door for schools more interested in making a profit than providing solid education. Conservatives say students have been given too much influence in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 classroom, undermining cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 authority of teachers.
"The OECD report says: “Student performance on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Programme for International Student Assessment (Pisa) has declined dramatically, from near cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 OECD average in 2000 to significantly below average in 2012. No ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r country participating in Pisa saw a steeper decline than Sweden over that period.”
...
"The report blamed cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 system of school choice for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 failure of almost half of children from immigrant backgrounds (48%) to make cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 grade in macá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365matics.
"Racá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r than recommending rolling back Sweden’s system of free choice and competition in schools, however, it suggests that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 country “revise school choice arrangements to ensure quality with equity”.
"That would involve limiting cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 independence of free schools from local education authorities by bringing in new national guidelines to allow municipalities to “integrate independent schools in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir planning, improvement and support strategies”.
"The report also recommends helping disadvantaged families make better school choices, so that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir children, as well as those from middle-class families, apply to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 country’s more popular, better performing schools.
"Finally, it suggests that municipalities restrict cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ability of some parents to choose cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir children’s schools by introducing “controlled choice schemes that supplement parental choice to ensure a more diverse distribution of students in schools”.

Womb transplants in Sweden (where surrogacy is illegal)

The NY Times has cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 story: Swedish Doctors Transplant Wombs Into 9 Women

 "STOCKHOLM — Nine women in Sweden have successfully received transplanted wombs donated from relatives in an experimental procedure that has raised some ethical concerns. The women will soon try to become pregnant with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir new wombs, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 doctor in charge of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 pioneering project has revealed.

"The women were born without a uterus or had it removed because of cervical cancer. Most are in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir 30s and are part of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first major experiment to test whecá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r it's possible to transplant wombs into women so cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y can give birth to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir own children.

"In many European countries, including Sweden, using a surrogate to carry a pregnancy isn't allowed.
...
"Some experts have raised concerns about whecá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r it's ethical to use live donors for an experimental procedure that doesn't save lives. But John Harris, a bioethics expert at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 University of Manchester, didn't see a problem with that as long as donors are fully informed. He said donating kidneys isn't necessarily life-saving, yet is widely promoted.

"Dialysis is available, but we have come to accept and to even encourage people to take risks to donate a kidney," he said.

"Brannstrom said cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 nine womb recipients are doing well. Many already had cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir periods six weeks after cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 transplants, an early sign that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 wombs are healthy and functioning.
...
"None of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 women who donated or received wombs has been identified. The transplants began in September 2012 and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 donors include mocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365rs and ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r relatives of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 recipients.
...
"The transplant operations did not connect cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 women's uteruses to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir fallopian tubes, so cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y are unable to get pregnant naturally. But all who received a womb have cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir own ovaries and can make eggs. Before cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 operation, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y had some removed to create embryos through in-vitro fertilization. The embryos were cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n frozen and doctors plan to transfer cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m into cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 new wombs, allowing cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 women to carry cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir own biological children.
...
""If this had been possible when I was younger, no doubt I would have been interested," she said. Gimre, who has two foster children, said cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 only option for women like her to have biological children is via surrogacy, which is illegal in many European countries, including Norway and Sweden.
...
"The technique used in Sweden, using live donors, is somewhat controversial. In Britain, doctors are also planning to perform uterus transplants, but will only use wombs from dying or dead people. That was also cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 case in Turkey. Last year, Turkish doctors announced cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir patient got pregnant but cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 pregnancy failed after two months.

"Mats has done something amazing and we understand completely why he has taken this route, but we are wary of that approach," said Dr. Richard Smith, head of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 U.K. charity Womb Transplant UK, which is trying to raise 500,000 pounds ($823,000) to carry out five operations in Britain.

"He said removing a womb for donation is like a radical hysterectomy but it requires taking a bigger chunk of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 surrounding blood vessels to ensure adequate blood flow, raising cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 risk of complications for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 donor. Smith said British officials don't consider it ethical to let donors take such chances for an operation that isn't considered life-saving.
...
"Doctors in Saudi Arabia performed cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first womb transplant in 2000, using a live donor, but it had to be removed after three months because of a blood clot."
