Toronto (Oct. 27, 2004) - The emerging science of using the body's own natural defences to fight organ rejection is the next frontier in transplantation medicine, say Toronto General Hospital (TGH) physicians and scientists who will speak Wednesday, Nov. 3, 2004 at a day-long international transplant symposium at the Royal Ontario Museum and on Thursday, Nov. 4, 2004 at the Research Day in Transplantation at TGH. Wednesday's international symposium – "Improving Life through Innovation" – will bring together more than 275 transplant specialists and scientists from several countries.
The event, a collaboration between TGH and the University of Toronto, is to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Multi Organ Transplant Program at TGH, which is Canada's first and largest such program. TGH is a teaching hospital affiliated with the university and Dr. David Naylor, Dean of the Faculty of Medicine will officially open the symposium with Dr. Gary Levy, Medical Director of the TGH Multi Organ Transplant Program.
"We have entered a new era in organ transplantation," says Dr. Levy. "The promise of tomorrow is that we will be able to conquer the greatest risks in transplantation – infection and rejection – by inducing the body to produce its own immunities and, ultimately, to fix itself."
This will be accomplished, say members of the TGH team, by using new molecular diagnostic tools, technologies and therapeutics. For example:
Following the international symposium, speakers, faculty and guests, including many TGH organ recipients, will attend a gala fundraising event organized by the Toronto General & Western Hospital Foundation to support transplantation research and the completion of TGH's new transplant centre. The "Birthday Ball: Celebrating life through transplant excellence" takes place at the Liberty Grand Entertainment Complex, 25 British Columbia Rd., Exhibition Place, and will be hosted by Andy Barrie of CBC's Metro Morning.
