- Four cancer patients after transplants from the same donor?
(Alles Europa News)- In the year 2018, the researchers assured that this was a case of “extreme rarity”.
Normally, organ donation is not allowed for people who have already contracted tumors, even after their death.
There are exceptions, for example in some cases of skin cancer or localized tumors. Provisions that keep the risk of transmission of an affected organ at a low rate, between 0.01% to 0.05% for each organ.
A few years after receiving organ transplants from the same person, four women fell ill. An extremely rare case. Only one of them is still alive.
