The widespread success of living renal transplantation has given the medical community both the opportunity and the responsibility of establishing social and ethical guidelines for the protection of donors and the treatment of recipients. While the prospects of treating more patients with organ transplant is exciting, the demand still far outpaces the supply. It is the responsibility of the transplant community and individual transplant centers to maintain a high level of integrity and ethical practice so that living renal transplantation can continue to be a viable and effective treatment for renal failure.
