"The insurance coverage is provided via a Master Policy agreement between SEOPF and AIG Insurance Company."
SEOPF announced it will offer the LODN to all kidney transplant centers in the US.
Each transplant center will be required to pay a one time fee for leach living kidney donor at the center which will vary depending on whether the centers is a member of SEOPF, in which case the fee is deductible.
Armata added that SEOPF is currently looking into the possibility of getting AIG to secure similar protection for living liver donors.
SEOPF, which has member organizations in 19 states, including 50 transplant centers, focuses on education and research in transplantation and organ donation.
PharmaSeek says it will focus on investigator selection and study start up activities, while SEOPF will concentrate on design and analysis of clinical trials.
