  • LIVER-TRANSPLANTATION - AN UNFINISHED PRODUCT TRANSPLANTATION PROCEEDINGS Starzl, T. E., Todo, S., Tzakis, A. G., Gordon, R. D., Makowka, L., Stieber, A., Podesta, L., Yanaga, K., Concepcion, W., Iwatsuki, S. 1989; 21 (1): 2197-2197

Better immunosuppression may become available soon as exemplified by developments with the Japanese drug, FK506. Improved preservation with the UW solution is already here.

Examples were cited of innovative approaches using liver transplantation for the treatment of hepatic malignancies.
