Pure Transplant Solutions Launches Crowdfunding Campaign for Its Novel Technology Poised to Change the Future of Organ Transplantation
Date:7/25/2013

er than existing treatments since it doesn’t strip the blood of all antibodies and proteins, only those that don’t match with a donor.”

The ARC can be used to treat any kind of solid organ or bone marrow transplant recipient, but as with most innovations in transplant medicine, new treatments are tried in kidney transplantation first since kidney transplants are the most frequent and have the highest survival rates.

With the ARC technology, organ transplantation will become an option for those patients who have been unable to find a donor match based on their highly sensitized condition. Long-term survival rates and quality of life of patients will increase as the frequency of organ rejection episodes decrease. The ARC will also decrease the time patients have to wait for an organ, and it will significantly impact the donor organ pool by making organs available regardless of tissue match.

“There are hundreds of thousand of people globally that could benefit from the ARC technology and we believe a crowdfunding campaign is the best way to get the word out about its potential,” said Dr. William Hildebrand, PTS Founder and Chief Scientist.

Indiegogo is the world's largest self-serve open-funding platform offering rewards in exchange for contributions. For as little as $5, a pledge can be made to help advance the ARC technology and become a part of transplantation history. Other perks include a limited edition “Any Organ Any Body” t-shirt and an autographed copy of The Climb of My Life the true story of world-renowned mountain climber and heart transplant recipient, Kelly Perkins. A larger contribution secures two tickets to an exclusive event in Austin, TX where contributors will meet the scientific team, enjoy food, drink and live music by nine-time Grammy winner and lead singer of '/>"/>
