How the development of ideas and techniques since the 1800's has led to the present success of transplant surgery?
Because immuno suppressive drugs which suppress a natural immune response to an organism was not used in the early 1800s, the bodies kept on rejecting the foreign organs so the patient kept dying when the body sent antibodies to kill the transplanted organ, seeing it as a foreign body. Eventually immuno suppressive drugs were developed to stop the body rejecting and attacking the organ and so now there are very few rejections meaning there is a much higher success rate.

Dr. Callum Hume broke through the transplant techniques and introduced suppressants. The first ever organ was transplated in Boston, USA. It was a kidney transplant and the man survived another 8 years. 1954 was the development of cyclosporine. This help revolusionise the history of transplants. Answer A new drug was formed called cyclosporine.

The ideas have kept on rolling on !Joseph Murray performed the first successful transplant, a kidney transplant between identical twins, in 1954, successful because no immunosuppression was necessary in genetically identical twins. But after this resaerch showed that this only happened becasue the twqins had identical immune systems so they wouldn't reject the organ. They then came up with immunosuppressive . Hi Caitlin :)
What factor would diminish the chance of success of a lung transplant but is not a factor in a heart transplant?

The first successful kidney transplant had been done in 1954, opening a new frontier. On 3 December 1967 he took the heart of an otherwise healthy 25-year-old road accident victim, Denise Darvall, and placed it in the chest of 53-year-old Louis Washkansky. They were the same blood group, and Washkansky was dying of heart disease and diabetes. He rallied after the operation, although he died 18 days later of double pneumonia, a result of too…
