Acute GVHD usually develops 3-5 weeks after transplantation and it is most commonly diagnosed in conjunction with or it is usually heralded by such skin manifestations as maculopapular rash and pruritis.

The number of patients with this complication continues to grow, and many return home from transplant centres after HCT requiring continued treatment with immunosuppressive drugs that increases their risks for serious infections and other complications. In this Seminar, we review our understanding

In its acute form (aGVHD), GVHD involves the skin, liver, and gastrointestinal (GI) tract, with GI involvement most strongly associated with poor prognosis.

VRE infections following solid organ transplantation display a mortality of 9 48%, reaching 56 80% in the rst year after surgery [9]. A history of previous colonization has been shown to be strongly associated with the sub-sequent development of VRE infection. Colonization is common in solid transplantation patients, with up to 12%

Surgical site infections (SSIs) after liver transplantation (LT) are associated with an increased risk of graft loss and death. The incidence of SSIs after LT and their risk factors have been determined for first LT but not for second LT. The impor-tance of reporting the incidence of SSIs risk-stratified by first LT versus second LT is not

These microbes dynamically interact with each other and their host to maintain homeostasis. Dysbiosis, a disruption in the homeostasis of the gut microbiota, is

and gastrointestinal infections were observed in patients with inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs) who received immunosuppressive drugs just before MSC injection [3]. Autologous transplantation of MSCs is di cult to attempt on patients with fulminant diseases because of a long cell preparatory period and cell transplantation timing.

This study aims to describe severe gastrointestinal complications (SGC) after lung transplantation. Methods: We performed a prospective, observational study that included 136 lung transplant patients during a


Gastrointestinal symptoms, and elevated liver enzymes, are common after HSCT, often due to drug toxicity, graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) or infections. It is essential to distinguish between GVHD and infection, since both conditions may progress to lethal disease, but require opposite strategies for the immunosuppressive treatment. Several of the

Human herpesvirus 6 infections after liver transplantation

HHV-6 infections as early as 10 d and as late as 5 years after liver transplantation have been reported[33]. Since the vast majority of patients have developed HHV-6 infections during early life and harbor the latent virus, the vast majority of HHV-6 infections after transplantation are believed to be due to endogenous reactivation.

Patients with infections had a median age at transplantation of 50.5 years (interquartile range [IQR], 35 to 57), and the majority were adults 18 years of age (9 of 12 [75%

The incidence of malignancy continues to increase throughout the late post-transplantation period and the cumulative incidence of non-skin malignancy may reach 33% 30 years after transplantation.

Fecal Microbiota Transplantation (FMT) Background Fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) is a procedure whereby donor fecal matter is placed into a patient s gastrointestinal system in order to recolonize it with normal gut bacteria that have been killed or suppressed. The most common use for FMT is treatment of Clostridium difficile infections.
