To Transplant or Not to Transplant: The Case of Cystic Fibrosis

Amnon Levy

Economics Working Papers from School of Economics, University of Wollongong, NSW, Australia

Abstract: An organ transplantation rule is constructed with a special reference to the controversial procedure of transplantation of lung sections from living donors to cystic fibrosis patients. The rule indicates the minimum probability of success required for transplantation and how it is related to a wide range of factors associated with the well being and objectives of the directly involved recipient, donor and surgeon.
