Organ donation between HIV-positive people is gradually becoming more common

At the clinic of Duke University in North Caroline, USA, the first liver transplant from an HIV-positive donor was performed to a recipient with the same HIV status, WRAL TechWire reported. This was the first such operation in southeast USA.

The liver transplant operation for 61-year-old Stanley Boling took place three days before Christmas and now, four months later, the doctors say the patient is in perfect health and the operation was successful - the liver took root. "It was a great Christmas present," Boling said.

Until recently, transplants between HIV-positive people in the United States were illegal. The first operation took place at the Johns Hopkins Hospital in March 2016. Such operations are also permitted in the UK and South Africa.

Transplants between HIV-positive donors and recipients is still relatively rare, but it is gradually becoming popular - more and more clinics are beginning to conduct such operations. Thanks to this, hundreds of patients with HIV can potentially benefit from these new opportunities for good health.
