An article published in the scientific journal The New England Journal of Medicine, shows that oxygenated perfusion of the donated liver before transplantation has a significant positive impact on the outcomes after transplantation. The study demonstrates two thirds lower rates of biliary complications, less hemodynamic compromise and that the incidence of early graft dysfunction is reduced by nearly half with oxygenated perfusion. The randomized trial, with livers donated after circulatory death, was performed in a large international consortium of liver transplant centers and included 156 patients. The Liver Assist device that was used for oxygenated perfusion in the trial, is CE-marked. XVIVO intends to submit an application for regulatory approval of the device to the FDA during 2021.
