We are investigating the mechanism of biliary stricture formation (ischemic cholangiopathy/ischemic-type biliary stricture) in donor after cardiac death (DCD) liver allografts. Understanding the molecular mechanism of the stricture formation will allow effective therapies to ameliorate ITBS in liver transplantation. Overcoming the major complication of ITBS will potentially lead to significant expansion in donor livers in an era of increasing organ shortage.
