For your consideration are 18 policy proposals that are being issued for public comment. These proposals address issues considered during recent meetings of the Kidney and Pancreas Transplantation Committee, Executive Committee, Liver and Intestinal Organ Transplantation Committee, Thoracic Organ Transplantation Committee, Histocompatibility Committee, Membership and Professional Standards Committee, Operations Committee, and Pediatric Transplantation Committee.

Following public comment and reconsideration by the appropriate committee(s), these proposals may be offered for consideration by the committee(s) to the OPTN/UNOS Board at its November 17-18, 2005 meeting.


Comments regarding the proposals may be submitted electronically at the above sites. Please mail, fax, or email your comments on these proposals to UNOS by September 29, 2005.

The Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN)/United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) appreciate your response to these important issues.
