Following the great success of Accommodation in ABO-incompatible Kidney Transplantation published in September 2004, Elsevier is proud to present the publication of ABO-incompatible Organ Transplantation from Japan, also edited by Professor Kota Takahashi. This new publication consists of a collection of invited papers from the International Meeting at the 41st Annual Meeting of the Japan Society for Transplantation held in Niigata on 29 October 2005. Since the donation of cadaver organs is extremely rare in Japan, ironically, ABO-incompatible transplants and partial liver transplants from living donors have become prevalent as a way of expanding the accommodation of transplants. More than 700 ABO-incompatible kidney transplants and over 300 ABO- incompatible liver transplants have been performed in Japan, and the results improve yearly.

With the success of organ transplantation and the declining number of heart beating cadaver donors, the number of patients awaiting a transplant continues to rise. This means that alternative sources of donors have been sought, including donors after cardiac death. Such donors sustain rapid damage to their organs due to ischaemia, and as a consequence some organs do not work initially and some none at all. Written by international experts,this book lays out the moral, legal and ethical restraints to using such donors for organ transplant together with the techniques that have been adopted to improve their outcome. The different approaches and results of renal transplant according to country are covered together with the procedures andoutcomes adopted to use other organs, notably liver and lung. The outcome of transplanting a vital organ which fails to function immediately is death of the recipient. The success of transplanting such 'damaged' organs shows how far progress has been made with utilising such donors and why the proportion of transplants has increased so dramatically in recent years (developments have allowed these programmes to flourish such that in the UK 25% of kidney transplants were from such donors in2006).
Differences in the meaning and style of charity may also mitigate against kidney donation in Japan . Much Western sociological literature has approached organ
transplantation from the perspective of gift - giving , and identified the donation of

Intended as the primary text for introductory courses on medical anthropology, this book integrates human biological data relevant to health and disease with both evolutionary theory and the social environments that more often than not produce major challenges to health and survival. Becausestudents who take this fastest-growing anthropology course come from a variety of disciplines (anthropology, biology, especially pre-med students, and health sciences, especially), the text does not assume anything beyond a basic high-school level familiarity with human biology and anthropology. Theauthors first present basic biological information on a particular health condition and then expand their analysis to include evolutionary, historical, and cross-cultural perspectives. Among the topics covered are nutrition, infectious disease, stress, reproductive health, behavioral disease, aging,race/racism and health, mental health, and healers and healing.
