Milestones In transplantation

Early 20th Century: Techniques of joining two or more blood vessels developed by
Mathiew Jaboulay and Alexis Carrel.

1950s:Beginning of a modern era of transplantation.

1954:First successful kidney transplant (living donor transplant)
performed between identical twins in 1954 by Joseph Murray and
his colleagues.

1959:Schwartz and Dameshek discovered that 6-mercaptopurine had
immunosuppressive properties.

Roy Calne showed that azathioprine (a derivative of 6-
mercaptopurine) prevented the rejection of canine kidney
transplantation.

1960s:Combination of azathioprine and corticosteriods developed.

1970s:(Late):Beginning of a cyclosporine era.
