  • Description

    Some Australian heart and kidney surgeons have described research being done at the John Curtin School of Medical Research in Canberra as "a major breakthrough" and "enormously exciting". The subject of their excitement is research into the problems of foreign tissue rejection in organ transplant patients. The work could help those with diabetes, leukaemia and heart trouble. A Senior Fellow in Immunology, Dr. Kevin Lafferty, says he has found a way of suppressing the method by which transplanted organs stimulate rejection symptoms in the host. His treatment does not use the often dangerous immuno-suppressant drugs. Peter Harvey of TCN Nine Sydney reports.
