Currently there are more than 120,000 patients with end-stage organ failure on the waiting list for organ transplantation with 18 patients dying each day. The MOnIToR study was aimed at increasing the number of organs transplanted from deceased donors by reversing acute organ dysfunction in donors after brain death.
