Clin Transplant. 2022 Apr;36(4):e14615. doi: 10.1111/ctr.14615. Epub 2022 Feb 27.


The growth in pancreas transplant is driven in part by expansion of indications to include an increasing number of select patients with type 2 diabetes. Two papers in this month's issue of Clinical transplantation specifically investigate this association, and in parallel illustrate the complexity of defining the association of race with pancreas transplant outcomes from different perspectives and illustrate several important concepts related to health equity in organ transplantation.
