Although living persons donate kidneys, cadaveric donors
are the main source of solid organs for transplantation.
In a recent study, graft survival was significantly lower when cadaveric donors
over 55 years had hypertension for over 10 years and a creatinine clearance of less than 80 mL/min (Transplantation 70: 765-71, 2000).
alone cannot meet increasing organ requirements.
Subjects: A total of 1946 renal transplant were performed from 1537 living and 409 cadaveric donors

Some 92% of kidney grafts from cadaveric donors
and 95% of those from living donors are still functioning one-year after transplant.
Moreover islet transplantation requires at least two donor organs for each recipient and therefore its broad application remains limited due to lack of sufficient cadaveric donors
