Oral lesions in renal transplant patients

Journal of Oral Pathology
W R TyldesleyR A Sells

Abstract

Plaque-like lesions of the oral mucosa have been observed in seven immunosuppressed renal transplant patients. Whilst bearing a superficial resemblance to acute pseudomembranous candidiasis (thrush), these lesions have been shown to be associated with bacterial overgrowth and not with fungi. Treatment has depended on the use of appropriate antibiotics and antiseptics together with the adoption of measures to cause disintegration of the mucoid matrix of the lesions.

Allogenic & Autologous Therapies

Allogenic therapies are generated in large batches from unrelated donor tissues such as bone marrow. In contrast, autologous therapies are manufactures as a single lot from the patient being treated. Here is the latest research on allogenic and autologous therapies.
