Transplantation is already the optimum treatment for terminal renal failure. Donor organ shortage means that there are large number of patients on dialysis awaiting this treatment. This has in some countries led to unacceptable unscrupulous practices of live non-related graft donation.

The future is promising and xenografting may well solve the organ shortage but undoubtedly will raise other issues.
