It seems appropriate to review the American Journal
of Transplantation (AJT) in 2004, the 50th
anniversary of the first successful renal transplant procedure. The field
of transplantation has matured, and advances in this discipline represent
some of the greatest achievements of medicine in the 20th century. Coincident
with the growth of the field, professional societies dedicated to the advancement
of transplantation medicine have emerged. The AJT debuted
in 2001, and it is now the official journal of both the American Society of
Transplant Surgeons and the American Society of Transplantation, the premier
transplantation societies in North America. Under the steady guidance of founding
editor Philip F. Halloran, MD, PhD, AJT has grown
rapidly in popularity. As a result of rigorous peer review, the high quality
of the articles accepted for publication in this journal aptly reflects the
best international information available.
