Abstract

This paper studies the efficacy of the donor priority rule in promoting deceased organ donation under blood-type compatibility constraints in both theory and the laboratory. Compared with a scenario in which transplantations are operated only within the same blood-type cohort, we find that allowing cross-blood-type transplantations discourages the donation incentives of hard-to-match agents (type O), and hence reduces the supply of widely acceptable organs. Meanwhile, the easy-to-match agents (type AB) have higher incentives to donate. More importantly, at the aggregate level, both theoretical and experimental results suggest that the aggregate donation rate is lower with cross-blood-type transplantations under mild conditions.
