NEAD chains in kidney exchange: more on long chains

GE healthymagination’s online health blog, Healthy Outlook, has an article by Jane Langille on the unusually long Nonsimultaneous Extended Altruistic Donor (NEAD) Chain I blogged about earlier, organized by Garet Hil's National Kidney Registry.

The article briefly mentions the work that Itai Ashlagi and I are doing to help optimize long chains, which have the potential to increase not only the number of transplants, but the number of transplants received by the most highly sensitized patients. (More on this soon...)
