Donated organs can be stored for long time: Researchers
Washington: (July 2, 2014) Researchers from America discovered a technique through which donated organs can be stored for long time. Normally it is essential that the donated organs of human body can only be transplanted into the donor body within 24 hours, after that cell became dead.
However scientist from America discovered a technique named “Super cooling” through which donated organs can be stored up to 3 days by slowing down the death rate of cells. It is a good breakthrough in the health sciences and people will get benefit from the donated organs more efficiently as compared to the past.
Experiments were conducted in the London where rat liver was stored under -6˚ C and transplanted after 3 days in the donor rat. Liver worked normally. Dr.Kowarkat from the Harvard Medical School said that now the wastage of donated organs can be minimized due to super cooling technique and person can find matching organ easily at any place and time.
