Same Kidney Transplanted Twice | Singularity Hub | Longevity science |

Kidneys make up about 80 percent of transplanted organs. One kidney was transplanted into a young patient with a common disease called focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS). After transplant, the donor kidney started growing diseased.


But it wasn't the end of the line for that transplanted kidney. Something unusual occurred- the same kidney was transplanted into another patient and the disease was reversed.
