Bac, Jo - University of Aberdeen, School of Law

The Economics of Kidney Transplantation

Author: 

Demirdöğen, Yavuz

Credentials: 

Assistant Professor, Süleyman Demirel University (Turkey)

Over the last century, the world witnessed outstanding advancements in the field of surgery and organ transplantation, with success ratios reaching 80% to 90%. There is, however, a huge difference between the number of organs available for transplantation and the number of people in need of transplantable organs. Over the past few decades, the gap has grown dramatically, and the systems mentioned are insufficient to balance the supply and demand of transplantable organs and, specifically within the scope of this book, the shortage of kidneys.

Humankind, Society, and the Environment: Lessons of the Past and Responsibility to the Future

Author: 

Wolfson, Adi, Ph.D., Ben-Gurion University of the Negev

Credentials: 

Head, Department of Chemical Engineering, Sami Shamoon College of Engineering

Our world is the product of many changes. Evolutionary processes of matter and energy have altered the natural environment. Revolutionary changes created by humans have alienated man from nature and changed the relationship between them in fundamental ways. These processes, led by urbanization and industrialization, have also eroded natural resources, polluted the air, land, and water, reduced biodiversity, and caused climate change. All of these transformations threaten the existence of humanity as we know it and endanger the whole of nature.
