Overview

Rebuilding the Body: Organ Transplantation by Ann Fullick

Rebuilding the Body: Organ Transplantation delves inside the human body to show how our major organs and specialized cells work, what happens when they don’t, and how they can be replaced. It shows the importance of tissue type and blood group compatibility and the role of the immune system in organ rejection. It explains how organs are stored and transported, and looks at advances like complex domino transplants, face transplants, and immunosuppressant drugs. It discusses the ethics surrounding xenotransplantation, using the dead as donors, and the groundbreaking research into pluripotent stem cells.
