Apple CEO Steve Jobs transplant likely linked to earlier cancer, Stanford doctor says

Treatment for Jobs' type of slow-growing pancreatic cancer may include a liver transplant, said Dr. Waldo Concepcion, a Stanford University transplant expert. A healthy new liver offers patients a higher quality of life and reduces the risk of disease spreading to other organs.

"These tumors can be treated quite well with liver transplants and are able to be managed and have a good outcome," said Concepcion, who did not treat Jobs and is not familiar with the specifics of his case. "In transplants, there are no guarantees, but if it works well, people can lead normal lives. We're proud of him and we're all rooting for him, and wish him the best."

Five years ago, Jobs, 54, disclosed that he had been diagnosed with and cured of a rare form of pancreatic tumor called islet neuroendocrine cancer. Then in January he was treated for weight loss and went on a medical leave from Apple. Now, according to a story posted Friday on The Wall Street Journal's Web site, he received a liver transplant two months ago at an unidentified transplant center in Tennessee.
