Summary of "Long-term impact of cytomegalovirus serologic status on lung transplantation in the United States."

Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection has been associated with poor outcomes following solid organ transplantation. However, the long-term impact of donor and recipient CMV serological status on lung transplant outcomes remains unclear. Accordingly, we evaluated the impact of donor and recipient CMV status on long-term patient as well as allograft survival following single (SLT) and double lung transplantation (BLT).

A quality-of-life scale developed in the United States in 1972 as a measure of health status or dysfunction generated by a disease. It is a behaviorally based questionnaire for patients and addresses activities such as sleep and rest, mobility, recreation, home management, emotional behavior, social interaction, and the like. It measures the patient's perceived health status and is sensitive enough to detect changes or differences in health status occurring over time or between groups.
