Can you be listed on an organ registry of people who have similar diseases to you so you can get organs quicker?

Not really but.....: The one exception i can think of is the case for kidney transplant in recipients that have hepatitis c. We don't give deceased donor kidneys from patients with exposure to hepatitis c to recipients that have never been exposed. The transmission rate approaches 100%. But for those recipients who have had hepatitis c, they can get a kidney quicker if they will agree to accept a hepatitis c organ. ...Read more

Researchers look for these and report it (postmarketing). So a dr has a good idea of the anticipated se. Idiosyncratic and allergic reaction to multiple medications is rare, but can be seen.

Pft results for all 4 of the items listed under dlco were all over 100% of predicted and would like to know if that is good or bad and what it means.?
