Kidneys are important to human health as they filter waste products out of the blood circulation. When a person’s kidneys are not operating properly, renal replacement therapy (RRT) is required and eventually a transplant will be needed. In 2016, it was estimated that there were over 27.1 thousand kidney transplants in Europe. While in the United Kingdom, approximately 63.2 thousand patients were receiving RRT as of 2016, representing a rate of around 962 patients per million population in the UK.
