Abstract

Variable rates of malignancy and early infection have previously been reported in heart transplant (HTx) recipients who received induction therapy. This study hypothesized that induced pediatric patients would have an increased risk of these events compared with non-induced patients. Da...read more

Epstein–Barr virus infections (ASM)

The Epstein-Barr virus or human herpesvirus 4 is a common virus in humans. It is best known as the cause of infectious mononucleosis, but is also associated with many malignancies and autoimmune disorders. Find the latest research on Epstein-Barr virus infection here.

T cells: Cytokine Receptors

Cytokines play an important role in T cell development, priming, and effector functions. Cytokine receptors are of increasing interest as pharmacological targets in various disease states. Find the latest research on T cell cytokine receptors here.

Immunosuppression

Immunosuppression trends for solid organ transplantation have undergone a perceptible shift over the past decade. Discover the latest research on immunosuppression here.

X-Linked Combined Immunodeficiency Diseases

X-linked severe combined immunodeficiency is caused by mutations in the common cytokine-receptor gamma chain, resulting in disruption of development of T lymphocytes and natural-killer cells. Here is the latest research.


Graft Rejection

Graft rejection occurs when the donor's grafted tissue is rejected by the recipient's immune system, destroying the transplanted tissue. Discover the latest research on graft rejection here.

Congenital Heart Disease

Congenital heart diseases are present since birth and are a result of improper development of the heart. Prenatal diagnosis on screening ultrasound can detect these defects and better techniques for surgical repair have improved the life expectancy of those born with these diseases. Discover the latest research on congenital heart diseases here.

Cytomegalovirus infection

Cytomegalovirus is a common infection among adults with little to no symptoms. Cytomegalovirus infection among immunocompromised hosts or organ transplant recipients can lead to increased morbidity and mortality. Discover the latest research here.

Immune Tolerance

Immune tolerance happens when the immune system is not responsive to a substance or organism and does not elicit an immune response. This is a normal physiological response for some antigens, especially when detecting self from non-self. This has been a potential area of therapy for some disorders. Here is the latest research on immune tolerance.

Heart Transplantation

Heart transplantation is a surgical means of replacing a recipient's heart with a healthier organ. Find the latest research in heart transplantation here.
