After many unsuccessful trials the with the transplantation of kidneys, it wasn't until Ronald Herrick wanted to donate one healthy kidney to his identical twin. The operation was performed on December 23, 1954 at Peter Bent Brigham Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts. Dr. Joseph Murray and the surgical team transplant lead to the identical twin, Richard to many healthy years with his new kidney. After Dr. Murray's success with transplantation many organs soon after were tried to be transplanted. The United States would have lost a significant amount of lives without pushing through the unsuccessful trials.

The Tragedy of Xenotransplantation Background and challenges In 1954, surgeon Joseph Murray started a revolution in the Medical industry by performing the first human organ transplant, a kidney transplant between identical twins(1). Initially, allotransplantation received some hindrance due to the ability of the human immune system to reject any foreign object. With the introduction of cyclosporin, a powerful drug that minimizes the rejection of foreign tissue, allotransplantion possibilities have expanded spectacularly(3). It is no longer necessary to have an exact match of certain blood type markers for a successful human transplant. This means organs from unrelated people can be used.
