First small, ultrathin, and flexible wireless implant developed to detect early organ transplant rejection

Early-stage organ transplant rejection can be difficult to detect. Northwestern researchers developed an implantable bioelectronic system capable of continuous, real-time, long-term monitoring of the local temperature and thermal conductivity of a kidney for detecting inflammatory processes associated with graft rejection. Temperature variations can precede changes in blood biomarkers by weeks and this device could enable physicians to intervene sooner, improving patient outcomes and increasing the odds of preserving donated organs.
