Immunosuppression Regimen and the Risk of Acute Rejection in HIV-Infected Kidney Transplant Recipients

Renal transplantation for carefully selected HIV-positive patients has become well-accepted over the last decade. There remain concerns about the risk of overimmunosuppression in this group, due to their pre-existing immunodeficiency due to HIV infection. In this US registry study, HIV-positive patients actually had a higher risk of acute rejection than HIV-negative recipients, but this increased […]

Early in-hospital deaths following pediatric heart continue to be a significant problem. Multiple studies have defined potential risk factors for early death but a validated risk predication model for in-hospital mortality does not exist. This study aimed to develop and validate such a model to assist in predicting in-hospital mortality following pediatric heart transplantation. This […]
