Kidney Transplant Prospects Worse for Native Americans: Study


FRIDAY, Dec. 4, 2015 (HealthDay News) -- Native Americans are less likely than whites to get kidney transplants and more likely to die while waiting for a new organ, researchers say.

The investigators also found that Native Americans who do receive kidney transplants have slightly lower three-year survival rates compared to whites in the United States.

The results from an analysis of 16 years of national data were presented recently at a meeting of the American Society of Nephrology, in San Diego.
