Transplant Pregnancy Registry International
A subsidiary of Gift of Life Institute, the Transplant Pregnancy Registry is an ongoing research study focused on the effects of pregnancy on transplant recipients and the effects of immunosuppressive medications on fertility and pregnancy outcomes. A unique feature of this study is the long-term follow-up of the participants. The TPR provides information to transplant recipients contemplating post-transplant parenthood and to the healthcare providers who care for them.
Since its inception, 2,300 transplant recipients have shared information with the Registry regarding over 4,600 pregnancy outcomes. Each year, our study coordinators speak with hundreds of current and future mothers and fathers who are transplant recipients and to their healthcare providers.
