A recent publication in AJT describes the largest kidney transplant chain experience. They report the largest series of chain transplantation that were done at 57 centers in USA by pooling incompatible donor/recipient pairs. Every recipient whose intended donor donated were transplanted. 46% percent included minorities who have hard time getting donors. One year follow up is excellent with mean crt of 1.3mg/dl. This is a remarkable success and a step forward in the field of transplantation.
