News Release #3 - Eventual Elimination of Liver Transplants and Kidney Dialysis?
Updated: May 23
Does Advanced Regenerative Organ Tissue Replacement Mean the Eventual Elimination of Liver Transplants and Kidney Dialysis?
With the leadership of BCM Industries, regenerative organ tissue replacement is about to become an accepted patient healing solution. BCM is commencing advanced tissue replacement solution trials on skin, liver, kidneys, lungs and the pancreas.
This is an important event- because there are many thousands, even millions, of patients who need regenerative healing solutions for injured, diseased or failing organs. BCM now has the technologies, processes and procedures to begin volume delivery of regenerative tissue healing solutions.
Livers: Currently there are nearly 17,000 people waiting for a liver transplant in the United States. The median national waiting time in 2006 was 321 days.
Based on activity data analyzed from 2008 for 104 countries, representing nearly 90% of the worldwide population, it is shown that around 100,800 solid organ transplants are performed every year worldwide: 69,400 are kidney transplants (46% from living donors), 20,200 liver transplants (14.6% from living donors).
Kidneys: More than 661,000 Americans have kidney failure. Of these, 468,000 individuals are on dialysis, and roughly 193,000 live with a functioning kidney transplant. Each year, kidney disease kills more people than breast or prostate cancer. In 2013, more than 47,000 Americans died from kidney disease.
At the end of 2017, approximately 3.2 million patients received dialysis. According to estimates, the number of people worldwide suffering from chronic kidney failure and requiring dialysis treatment is rising at a relatively constant rate of around 6% annually.
As shown, the need for organ tissue replacements and healing is large. However, as BCM continues to increase production of tissue replacements for livers and kidneys, the need for liver transplants and kidney dialysis services and transplants will decrease.
