What is TXAS?

Organ transplantation is often the only treatment option for end-stage organ failure. However, transplants are a scarce resource and the allocation is a demanding process that takes into consideration established medical criteria, demographic data of both donors and recipients in addition to local clinical practice. TXAS is an application that was developed as a tool for prioritization of patients on the waiting list for organ transplants based on both donor and recipient characteristics. It runs an algorithm that can be tailored by the user and takes for example into consideration immunological data, age, weight, and time on the waiting list in addition to clinical data.
