Study: Process Used to Select Lung Transplant Patients May Need to be Changed

With a limited number of lungs available, deciding who gets a transplant can be a matter of life or death. New research from the UMSOM suggests that the system for choosing transplant recipients in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) may underestimate how long a person might survive without a lung transplant and therefore, may mislead clinicians.
