Topic: Tolerance Induction in Clinical Kidney Transplantation
Led by: Dr. John Scandling, MD, Professor of Medicine (Nephrology) at the Stanford University Medical Center

Transplantation outstrips dialysis as renal replacement therapy but with it comes immunosuppression, its risks, and the side effects of the immunosuppressive drugs. Immune tolerance offers freedom from these risks, and coupled with freedom from rejection, may offer the prospect of "one (transplant) kidney for life." Dr. Scandling will present the major tolerance trials underway.
