Renal transplant recipients are exposed to immunosuppressive treatment which may increase the risk for developing malignancies. Limited data exists concerning the occurrence of multiple primary malign...
Protease inhibitors (PI) pose a challenge post-transplant due to significant drug interactions with calcineurin inhibitors, prompting many clinicians to convert patients to non-interacting regimens pr...
Cryptococcosis is the second most common cause of invasive fungal infections in renal transplant recipients in many countries, and data on graft outcome after treatment for this infection is lacking i...
Pre-transplant cytomegalovirus (CMV) serostatus has been associated with lung transplant patient survival. We retrospectively analyzed the relationship between pre-transplant donor/recipient CMV seros...
Vascular complications are a significant source of morbidity and mortality among renal transplant recipients. Imaging using ultrasound, CT, and MRI plays a key role in diagnosing such complications. T...
This is a retrospective study involving all patients with a history of renal transplant that attended antenatal clinics at various Toronto hospitals and subsequently delivered between Janu...
The aim of this study is to estimate the usefulness of a T cell-based assay (i.e. T-SPOT.TB assay) for diagnosis of latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI) in renal transplant recipients. For...
The purpose of this study is to determine if administration of rituximab blocks the development of donor specific antibodies (DSA) in transplant recipients who have developed renal dysfunc...
Chronic transplant nephropathy and cardiovascular death are the main reasons for loss of transplanted organs after kidney transplantation. Vascular changes, induced by hypertension and/or...
The objective of this study is to evaluate the effects of tacrolimus sustained-release capsules replacing cyclosporin on kidney function of renal transplant recipients.
Non-cadaveric providers of organs for transplant to related or non-related recipients.
Individuals receiving tissues or organs transferred from another individual of the same or different species, or from within the same individual.
Identification of the major histocompatibility antigens of transplant DONORS and potential recipients, usually by serological tests. Donor and recipient pairs should be of identical ABO blood group, and in addition should be matched as closely as possible for HISTOCOMPATIBILITY ANTIGENS in order to minimize the likelihood of allograft rejection. (King, Dictionary of Genetics, 4th ed)
Immunoglobulin preparations used in intravenous infusion, containing primarily IMMUNOGLOBULIN G. They are used to treat a variety of diseases associated with decreased or abnormal immunoglobulin levels including pediatric AIDS; primary HYPERGAMMAGLOBULINEMIA; SCID; CYTOMEGALOVIRUS infections in transplant recipients, LYMPHOCYTIC LEUKEMIA, CHRONIC; Kawasaki syndrome, infection in neonates, and IDIOPATHIC THROMBOCYTOPENIC PURPURA.
A coronavirus first reported in the summer of 2012 in a pneumonia patient in SAUDI ARABIA. It is related to SARS VIRUS. MERS-CoV has an estimated incubation period of 12 days and symptoms include renal failure and severe acute pneumonia with often fatal outcome.
Organ transplantation is the moving of an organ from one body to another or from a donor site to another location on the patient's own body, for the purpose of replacing the recipient's damaged or absent organ. The emerging field of regenerative ...
