3 kids receive kidney transplants without need for immune-suppressing drugs

Three children with a rare genetic disease required kidney transplants, and using a unique transplant technique, doctors successfully replaced the children’s kidneys without the need for immunosuppressive drugs.

This puts organ recipients at increased risk of infection and cancer, and even then, immunosuppressive drugs don’t eliminate the risk that the body will eventually reject the organ anyway.
