Subscribe to our Podcast

Kidney transplant recipients currently must take immune-suppressing medications to prevent organ rejection, which can make them vulnerable to infections and disease.

In this podcast, Joseph Leventhal, MD, PhD, explains ongoing clinical trials at Northwestern for kidney organ recipients. The research is focused on eliminating the need for anti-rejection medication by tricking the immune system into believing the new organ is part of the recipient’s body.
