Pages e1. Microbiome and infectious diseases as . Opportunistic infections commonly occur during the first 6 months after kidney transplant, including cytomegalovirus (CMV) and polyomaviruses. Viral pathogens such as CMV and polyomaviruses, JC or BK virus (BKV), are able to replicate in the kidney and/or cause systemic disease, and symptomatic infection with these agents can be associated with significant morbidity and mortality in Author: Večerić-Haler Željka, Kojc Nika.

      Infectious complications after allogeneic haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HCT) remain a clinical challenge. This is a guideline provided by the AGIHO (Infectious Diseases Working Group) of the DGHO (German Society for Hematology and Medical Oncology).Cited by: Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are major causes of morbidity and hospitalization in renal transplant recipients. Infections, with the urinary tract as a major site, are the most common cause of acute kidney allograft injury, and prevalence of UTI-associated acute kidney injury far outnumbers episodes of acute rejection and calcineurin inhibitor toxicity [].Cited by:

    Infections may occur as a consequence of immunosuppression, or be related to technical and surgical issues of the transplant. Pathogens may be endogenous, of donor or recipient origin, or exogenously acquired through specific exposures. Urinary tract infections remain one of the most common problems postkidney : Deepali Kumar, Atul Humar. Infections and immunity Although immunosuppressants help prevent rejection of a new organ, they also slow down the body’s immune system, thus affecting the body’s defense against germs. Transplant recipients can therefore get infections more easily because their immune systems are suppressed.
