A Strategy to Extend the Lives of Those Waiting for a Donor Liver
There is an urgent need for a medical intervention that could reduce the circulating presence of hepatic toxins, pro-inflammatory cytokines, and pathogenic factors as a means to assist in extending the lives to those awaiting a liver transplant. Based on these requirements, there may be an opportunity for Sigyn Therapy to stabilize or extend the life of a patient prior to the identification of a matched liver for transplantation - otherwise known as a bridge-to-liver transplant. In 2017, 8,082 U.S. patients received a liver transplant, and 13,885 patients were on the waiting list for a liver transplant. In that year, the average cost associated with a liver transplant was reported to be $577,100 USD.
