The Patient Care and Education Committee of the American Society of Transplant Physicians (ASTP) examined the issue of racial inequality in kidney transplantation in the United States. Using both published data and personal experience, the committee developed a consensus on the issues and problems related to race in transplantation. This report summarizes the committee's conclusions and outlines its recommendations to the ASTP. The topics covered in the report are the prevalence and incidence of end stage renal disease among minorities; race and the likelihood of undergoing organ transplantation; racial differences in ABO blood groups and MHC antigens; race and organ donation; other potential causes of unequal access to transplantation; race and allograft survival; and race and pancreas and liver transplantation.
