Johns Hopkins University is on the verge of a medical first after receiving the green light to transplant organs between HIV-positive patients and donors.

The surgery was prohibited until only three years ago, until the HIV Organ Policy Equity Act landed on the president’s desk. About 122,000 people in the US are on the list waiting to receive organs.

The first such procedure will go forward when “the right match becomes available,” and the practice could salvage about 1,000 organs annually.
