PELD score and posttransplant outcome in pediatric liver transplantation: a retrospective study of 100 recipients

Transplantation
Christophe BourdeauxR Reding

Abstract

Pediatric End-stage Liver Disease (PELD) score is proposed as an objective tool to prioritize children awaiting liver transplantation (LT), higher PELD being associated with increased pre-LT mortality. This study investigated whether PELD may also impact on post-LT results. PELD was retrospectively analyzed in 100 pediatric recipients of a primary LT from living-related (n = 49) or postmortem donors (PMD, n = 51). The main pre-LT diagnosis was biliary atresia (n = 64), hepatic malignancy and fulminant hepatitis cases being excluded. PELD was calculated in all patients at the time of pre-LT assessment. Considering the median delay of 117 days between listing and LT in the PMD subgroup, a second PELD was calculated at the time of LT, allowing the determination of a delta PELD during the waiting period. PMD grafts were allocated using an allocation system taking into account waiting times as well as medical urgency, operative at EuroTransplant. Overall 5-year actuarial patient and graft survivals were 96% and 91%, respectively. PELD at listing (13.3 +/- 9.7) showed a normal statistical distribution. PELD scores at listing and at LT were not found to significantly impact on post-LT outcome (NS). In contrast, higher delta PELD might...Continue Reading

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Blastomycosis

Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

Microbicide

Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.
