28,051 US Organ Transplants in 2012

In the United States alone, nearly 30,000 organ transplants are performed annually with kidney, liver, heart, lung and pancreas being the most common. According to the 2011 Annual Report of the US Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network and the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients, there are approximately 275,000 living transplant recipients in the United States.

Transplant patients require frequent monitoring to evaluate organ graft status and to adjust a complex regimen of immunosuppressive medications, many with potential side effects, including infection and drug toxicities.

Transplant Genomics Inc. (TGI) aims to improve organ transplant outcomes through molecular diagnostic tests that detect early signs of graft injury, differentiate among actionable causes and enable optimization of therapy.
