Can you tell me more about organ transplant?

Big topic. Organ transplant means replacing a failed solid organ with a new one. The most common organs transplanted in order are the kidney, liver, heart, lungs, pancreas, and small intestine. The organs come from patients that have died or from living patients that can give one kidney or a piece of liver. The organs will be rejected without the use of powerful anti-rejection drugs.
