This novel treatment approach is potentially a cure for SIOD. When a new immune system is adopted from a donor—one that recognizes the transplanted kidney as its own—the possibility of chronic rejection of the kidney appears to be eliminated, along with the need for long-term medication. The body is no longer in a state of constantly fighting itself, and children treated with this method are experiencing more energy and less fatigue. By removing the need for medication, doctors also remove toxicities associated with these medications. Without medications and long hours of dialysis, quality of life for children is often improved.
