A 15-year-old liver transplant patient is the first person in the world to take on the immune system and blood type of her donor, negating the need to take anti-rejection drugs for the rest of her life.

Yeah, I thought that was very interesting and that they should be studying this, as it may hold promise for treating certain diseases.

I have heard all kinds of storied about what happens to organ recievers. One was about a 25 or so year old woman who was very health conscious got a heart from a 17 year old girl. She then started craving cheeseburgers and whatnot.

AN old girlfriend of mine's mom was talking abou how it is 'the energy' that is transferred.

Interesting.

__________________________ Old medicine, thought. Back in the late sixties there were drugs being developed to trick a womans antibodies into not reacting to her unborn child. O- woman ABO+ child. So this transplant recipiant O- gets an O+ Liver and instead of building antibodies against the liver, and rejecting the liver, her blood type becomes O+ ON ITS OWN. Yes I kknow that she was probably on antibody suppression drugs, but she changed Rh group.
