A kidney transplant patient's story

< Back to Video clips and transcripts


Organ transplants can fail because they are rejected by their new body. Animal research is producing better treatments for rejection but even so, organs rarely last more than 15 years. In this film we hear the story of one man - Darren Coley -  whose kidneys failed when he was still at college. His interview is inter-cut with an interview from a surgeon and a few moments of animal research. You can read more about the science behind transplantation here: www.animalresearch.info and hear more from the surgeon here: vimeo.com/86121247
