Perfusate Metabolite Profiles in Ex Vivo Lung Perfusion Predict Graft Quality of Lungs Donated after Circulatory Death
The Journal of heart and lung transplantation : the official publication of the International Society for Heart Transplantation, 2020.
We identified significantly altered metabolites in DCD lungs that distinguish between good and poor recipient outcomes. Future biomarker validation via a larger sample size is necessary prior to their use to optimally select post-EVLP DCD donor lungs for transplantation.
