From Bench to Bedside
Transplant Manitoba-Pediatric Kidney Program serves the provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan, North Western Ontario and Nunavut. Our program is recognized both nationally and internationally for its innovative clinical research. Cutting-edge research sets the standard for advances in the clinical care of transplanted children. Our unique innovations include:
- Pediatric Protocol Biopsy and Follow-Up Biopsy Programs for the early detection of subclinical (aka "silent") rejection.
- Quantitative image analysis to monitor the progression of chronic allograft nephropathy (CAN) (aka "scarring), the leading cause of long-term graft loss in children.
- Non-invasive biomarkers of rejection using urine nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR).
- Clincal trials aimed at the modulation of CAN.
- International Pediatric Transplantation Association (IPTA)
- Manitoba Institute of Child Health (MICH)
