Kidney Donation

Study Quantifies Kidney Failure Risk in Living Kidney Donors

• Researchers have developed a risk calculator that estimates the risk of kidney failure after donation. • Overall risk was quite low, but black race and male sex were associated with increased risks of developing kidney failure in living kidney donors. • Older age was associated with greater kidney failure risk in nonblack donors, but not in in black donors. • Higher body mass index and a close biological relationship to the transplant recipient were also associated with increased risks of kidney failure.

Bullies and Their Victims More Likely to Want Plastic Surgery

School bullies and their victims are more likely to want cosmetic surgery, according to new research by the University of Warwick. Professor Dieter Wolke - and colleagues in the Department of Psychology and Warwick Medical School - have discovered that teenagers who are affected by bullying in any way have a greater desire than others to change their bodies by going under the knife.
