Obama Lifts Ban on HIV Organ Transplant Research

President Barack Obama has lifted a ban on research into the possibility of transplanting organs from one HIV-positive person to another,” according to The Washington Post. The HOPE Act, as the bill is called, also “permits the health secretary to allow such transplants if the research results warrant a change. The safety of the organ transplant process also must be protected.” With more HIV-positive people living longer, this research should help alleviate the rising demand for organ transplants.
