Age has been implicated as a factor in the plateau of long-term survival after lung transplant.
This article was published in the following journal.
Nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) are environmental organisms that colonize or infect lung transplant recipients. Due to differences in populations studied and geographical diversity of species, risk ...
In response to a longstanding Federal mandate to minimize the role of geography in access to transplant in the United States, we assessed whether patient travel distance was associated with lung trans...
Median survival after lung transplant is less than 6 years. Standard maintenance therapy typically includes tacrolimus and an antimetabolite (mycophenolate mofetil or azathioprine). Replacing the anti...
Lung transplant recipients with serious illness may benefit from but rarely receive specialty palliative care (SPC) services. Transplant pulmonologists' views of SPC may be key to understanding SPC ut...
In the United States, the number of deceased donor hearts available for transplant is limited. As a proxy for medical urgency, the US heart allocation system ranks heart transplant candidates largely ...
Lung transplantation (TxP) is now a validated treatment of end-stage pulmonary diseases, but long-term graft and patient survival are still hampered by the development of chronic allograft...
Lung transplantation has several important aims: 1) extend survival; 2) relieve disability, and 3) improve health-related quality of life (HRQL) for adults suffering from end-stage lung di...
A fixed-dosing regimen of voriconazole is routinely used as prophylaxis against aspergillosis in liver transplant patients admitted to the transplant intensive care unit at UPMC. We hypoth...
Activity of genes in donor tissues that are involved in inflammation are thought to be involved with early organ dysfunction, increased immune responses in transplant recipients, and organ...
This study will create a database of clinical and biological research for use in future studies, with information obtained from lung transplant recipients. The database will consist of gen...
The relative amount by which the average fitness of a POPULATION is lowered, due to the presence of GENES that decrease survival, compared to the GENOTYPE with maximum or optimal fitness. (From Rieger et al., Glossary of Genetics: Classical and Molecular, 5th ed)
The decrease in neuronal activity (related to a decrease in metabolic demand) extending from the site of cortical stimulation. It is believed to be responsible for the decrease in cerebral blood flow that accompanies the aura of MIGRAINE WITH AURA. (Campbell's Psychiatric Dictionary, 8th ed.)
A peptide hormone that lowers calcium concentration in the blood. In humans, it is released by thyroid cells and acts to decrease the formation and absorptive activity of osteoclasts. Its role in regulating plasma calcium is much greater in children and in certain diseases than in normal adults.
The survival of a graft in a host, the factors responsible for the survival and the changes occurring within the graft during growth in the host.
Absence of air in the entire or part of a lung, such as an incompletely inflated neonate lung or a collapsed adult lung. Pulmonary atelectasis can be caused by airway obstruction, lung compression, fibrotic contraction, or other factors.
