    Improvement in Long-Term Renal Graft Survival due to CMV Prophylaxis with Oral Ganciclovir: Results of a Randomized Clinical Trial

    AMERICAN JOURNAL OF TRANSPLANTATION, Issue 5 2008
    V. Kliem
    Oral ganciclovir prophylaxis and intravenous preemptive therapy are competitive approaches to prevent cytomegalovirus (CMV) disease after renal transplantation. This trial compared efficacy, safety and long-term graft outcome in 148 renal graft recipients randomized to ganciclovir prophylaxis (N = 74) or preemptive therapy (N = 74). Hierarchical testing revealed (i) patients with CMV infection had more severe periods of impaired graft function (creatinine clearancemax-min 25.0 14.2 mL/min vs. 18.1 12.5 mL/min for patients without CMV infection; p = 0.02),(ii) prophylaxis reduced CMV infection by 65% (13 vs. 33 patients; p < 0.0001) but (iii) creatinine clearance at 12 months was comparable for both regimes (54.0 24.9 vs. 53.1 23.7 mL/min; p = 0.92). No major safety issues were observed, and patient survival at 12 months was similar in both groups (5 deaths [6.8%] vs. 4 [5.4%], p = 1.0000). Prophylaxis significantly increased long-term graft survival 4 years posttransplant (92.2% vs. 78.3%; p = 0.0425) with a number needed to treat of 7.19. Patients with donor +/recipient + CMV serostatus had the lowest rate of graft loss following prophylaxis (0.0% vs. 26.8%; p = 0.0035). In conclusion, it appears that routine oral prophylaxis may improve long-term graft survival for most renal transplant patients. Preemptive therapy can be considered in low risk patients in combination with adequate CMV monitoring. [source]

    Recipient and observer reactions to discipline: are managers experiencing wishful thinking?

    JOURNAL OF ORGANIZATIONAL BEHAVIOR, Issue 3 2001
    Leanne E. Atwater
    A qualitative study of recipients' and observers' reactions to discipline events was conducted. Data from 123 recipient interviews and 46 observer interviews were content analyszed and categorized. Results showed that while both groups see positive results from discipline, recipients and observers may lose respect for the discipliner, and may develop negative attitudes toward the organization as a consequence of the discipline. They are also likely to perceive the discipline event as unfair, especially when discipline is applied for informal as opposed to formal rule violations. Copyright 2001 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

    Recipient and donor factors influence the incidence of graft-vs.-host disease in liver transplant patients

    LIVER TRANSPLANTATION, Issue 4 2007
    Edie Y. Chan
    Acute cellular graft-vs.-host disease (GVHD) following liver transplantation has an incidence of 1 to 2% and a mortality rate of 85%. Our aim was to identify a patient population at high risk for developing GVHD using a large clinical database to study both recipient and donor factors. We compared our liver transplant patients who developed GVHD to those that did not for recipient and donor factors and combinations of factors. For 2003,2004 we had 205 first-time liver transplant patients surviving >30 days. From this group, 4 (1.9%) developed GVHD. Compared to the control group, there were no significant differences in recipient age, recipient gender, donor age, donor gender, total ischemia time, donor-recipient human leukocyte antigen (HLA) mismatch, or donor-recipient age difference. Percentages of liver disease etiologies among the patients who developed GVHD were as follows: 16% (1/6) autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) (P = 0.003), 5.6% (3/54) alcoholic liver disease (ALD) (P = 0.057), and 7.1% (3/42) hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) (P = 0.026). The incidence of GVHD in patients with glucose intolerance (either Type I or Type II diabetes mellitus [DM]) was significant (P = 0.022). Focusing on patients only with high-risk factors for GVHD during the years 2003,2005, we had 19 such patients. Four of these high-risk patients developed GVHD. Three of these 4 patients had received a donor liver with steatosis of degree ,mild compared to only 2 of the 15 high-risk patients who did not develop GVHD (P = 0.037). In conclusion, we have identified liver transplant patients with AIH or the combination of ALD, HCC, and glucose intolerance who receive a steatotic donor liver as being at high risk for developing GVHD.

    Values-based Political Messages and Persuasion: Relationships among Speaker, Recipient, and Evoked Values

    POLITICAL PSYCHOLOGY, Issue 4 2005
    Thomas E. Nelson
    The persuasive power of values-based political messages may depend on recipients having (1) shared values with the speaker (a type of personal identity match); (2) shared political party identifications with the speaker (a type of social identity match); and/or (3) expectations about values traditionally associated with different political parties (an expectancy violation/confirmation). The independent and joint effects of these factors on the success of a persuasive message were examined, using the theoretical framework of dual-process models of persuasion. Participants (N = 301), classified according to their party identifications and primary value orientations, read a political speech that varied by argument quality, speaker party, and values evoked. Results indicated that value matching promotes close attention to the message, while party mismatching increases message rejection. These effects depend to some extent, however, on expectancies about values traditionally associated with different parties. Participants especially rejected messages from rival party members when the speaker evoked unexpected values. Results are discussed in terms of their implications for the efficacy of values-based political communication. [source]


    Allotransplantation of Cryopreserved Parathyroid Tissue for Severe Hypocalcemia in a Renal Transplant Recipient

    AMERICAN JOURNAL OF TRANSPLANTATION, Issue 9 2010
    S. M. Flechner
    We report the successful allotransplantation of cryopreserved parathyroid tissue to reverse hypocalcemia in a kidney transplant recipient. A 36-year-old male received a second deceased donor kidney transplant, and 6 weeks later developed severe bilateral leg numbness and weakness, inability to walk, acute pain in the left knee and wrist tetany. His total calcium was 2.6 mg/dL and parathormone level 5 pg/mL (normal 10,60 pg/mL). He underwent allotransplantation of parathyroid tissue cryopreserved for 8 months into his left brachioradialis muscle. Immunosuppression included tacrolimus (target C0 10,12 ng/mL), mycophenolate mofetil and steroids. Within 2 weeks, the left knee pain, leg weakness and numbness resolved, and by 1 month he could walk normally. After a peak at month 2, his parathyroid hormone (PTH) level fell to <10 pg/mL; therefore at month 3 he received a second parathyroid transplant from the same donor. Eight months later (11 months after initial graft) he has a total calcium of 9.3 mg/dL, PTH level 15 pg/mL and is clinically asymptomatic. The amount of parathyroid tissue needed to render a patient normocalcemic is not known. In our case, the need for second transplant suggests that the amount of tissue transferred for an allograft may need to be substantially greater than for an autograft. [source]


    Visceral Leishmaniasis in a Kidney Transplant Recipient: Parasitic Interstitial Nephritis, a Cause of Renal Dysfunction

    AMERICAN JOURNAL OF TRANSPLANTATION, Issue 6 2010
    S. Dettwiler
    Visceral leishmaniasis (VL) due to Leishmania infantum is an endemic parasitic infection in the Mediterranean area. It most commonly affects immunosuppressed individuals, especially HIV patients and less frequently organ transplant recipients. Renal involvement seems to be frequent and is mostly associated with tubulointerstitial nephritis, as described in autopsy reports. In the 61 cases of renal transplant recipients with VL reported in the literature, renal dysfunction was noted at clinical presentation and was more frequently observed as a complication of antiparasitic therapy. However, no pathological analysis of the allograft lesions was reported. We present the case of a Swiss renal transplant recipient who developed VL after vacations in Spain and Tunisia, complicated by acute parasitic nephritis in the renal allograft 3 months after a well-conducted treatment of liposomal amphotericin B.

    EBV-Associated Leukoencephalopathy with Late Onset of Central Nervous System Lymphoma in a Kidney Transplant Recipient

    AMERICAN JOURNAL OF TRANSPLANTATION, Issue 4 2010
    A. Vaglio
    Central nervous system (CNS) lymphoma is a rare posttransplant lymphoproliferative disorder (PTLD), which usually has a poor outcome. To date, no specific conditions predisposing to this complication have been identified. We here describe the case of a renal transplant patient who was initially diagnosed as having Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-associated leukoencephalopathy and ultimately developed EBV-positive CNS lymphoma. The patient was a young lady who, 2 years after transplantation, presented with focal neurological and electroencephalographic abnormalities and diffuse white matter lesions on brain magnetic resonance imaging. EBV-DNA was detected in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) by polymerase chain reaction. After acyclovir therapy and immunosuppressive drug tapering, the symptoms and electroencephalographic abnormalities subsided, and EBV-DNA disappeared from the CSF. Ten years later, a bulky cerebral mass was found. After excision, a diagnosis of EBV-positive, Hodgkin-like monomorphic B-cell PTLD was made. This case illustrates the potential pathophysiological relationships between EBV infection, leukoencephalopathy and CNS lymphoma; although a long time elapsed from the initial neurological illness to CNS lymphoma, a link between these two conditions cannot be excluded. Therefore, a careful long-term follow-up of EBV-related encephalopathy is advisable. [source]


    Successful Immunotherapy of HCMV Disease Using Virus-Specific T Cells Expanded from an Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplant Recipient

    AMERICAN JOURNAL OF TRANSPLANTATION, Issue 1 2010
    G. R. Hill
    Opportunistic infection remains the principal cause of mortality in allogeneic stem cell transplant recipients with active extensive chronic graft-versus-host disease. Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) represents an important cause of disease in this setting and the toxicity of protracted and recurrent antiviral treatment together with eventual drug resistance represents a significant limitation to therapy. Although the expansion and adoptive transfer of HCMV-specific T cells from the healthy original donor can be an effective strategy to control viral replication, this is not possible when donors are seronegative or are subsequently inaccessible. Here we demonstrate for the first time, the successful expansion of HCMV-specific T cells from a seropositive transplant recipient of a seronegative graft with active HCMV disease and the long-term reconstitution of protective antiviral immunity following their adoptive transfer back into the patient.

    Single Kidney Transplantation from Young Pediatric Donors in the United States

    AMERICAN JOURNAL OF TRANSPLANTATION, Issue 12 2009
    L. K. Kayler
    Kidney transplantation (KTX) from small pediatric donors is performed as single or en bloc. Criteria to determine when to split pediatric donor kidneys and transplant as singles are not well established. Data reported to the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipient for donors <10 yrs from 1995 to 2007 were reviewed (n = 5079). Donors were categorized by weight group by 5 kg increments and solitary (n = 3503) versus en bloc (n = 1576). The primary outcome was overall graft survival. Results were compared as adjusted hazard ratios (aHR) relative to ideal standard criteria donors (SCDs) (defined as age 18,39 without other risk factors), non-ideal SCDs (all other SCDs) and expanded criteria donors (age 50,59 with other risk factors or age ,60). Single KTX from donors , 35 kg conferred a similar risk of graft survival as ideal SCDs. Of donors 10,34 kg, risks of en bloc KTX were similar to ideal and risks of single KTX to non-ideal SCDs; single and en bloc KTXs had 7.9 and 5.2 graft losses per 100 follow-up years, respectively. Single KTX from donors >35 kg are similar to ideal SCDs. Single KTX from donors 10,35 kg are similar to non-ideal SCDs. From a resource perspective, pediatric donors 10,35 kg used as singles offer more cumulative graft years than when used en bloc. [source]


    Apparent Remission of a Solitary Metastatic Pulmonary Lesion in a Liver Transplant Recipient Treated with Sorafenib

    AMERICAN JOURNAL OF TRANSPLANTATION, Issue 12 2009
    M. Yeganeh
    Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) remains a significant disease worldwide and its incidence is expected to increase. In selected patients, liver transplantation offers a 5-year patient survival between 48% and 75%. However, HCC recurrence occurs in approximately 20% of transplant recipients. No therapy has proven efficacious in decreasing the risk of recurrence after transplantation. Sorafenib, a multitargeted tyrosine kinase inhibitor, has been shown to improve survival in patients with advanced HCC that have no history of liver transplantation. We report complete remission of HCC in a 54-year-old man who developed biopsy-proven lung metastasis after liver transplantation treated with sorafenib. [source]

    Strongyloides Stercoralis Hyperinfection Transmitted by Liver Allograft in a Transplant Recipient

    AMERICAN JOURNAL OF TRANSPLANTATION, Issue 11 2009
    M. J. Rodriguez-Hernandez
    We describe a case of Strongyloides stercoralis hyperinfection in a liver allograft recipient 2.5 months after transplantation. The patient lives in Spain, which is not considered an endemic country for strongyloidiasis, and denied prior residence or travel to any known endemic area. The initial symptoms were fever and vomiting, and he subsequently developed a severe respiratory disease. An endoscopic biopsy of ulcerative lesions of the duodenum revealed massive mucosa infiltration by larvae and adult worms, which were also found in respiratory samples. The patient was successfully treated with combined therapy with albendazole and ivermectin. The strongyloides infection was transmitted by the liver allograft. The donor was from Ecuador and, retrospectively, his serum tested positive for S. stercoralis IgG antibodies. Additionally, the pancreas,left kidney allograft recipient from the same donor later developed an intestinal strongyloidiasis without hyperinfection syndrome. To our knowledge, this is the first confirmed case of S. stercoralis infection transmission from the same donor to two solid allograft recipients. [source]


    Fate of the Mate: The Influence of Delayed Graft Function in Renal Transplantation on the Mate Recipient

    AMERICAN JOURNAL OF TRANSPLANTATION, Issue 8 2009
    J. F. Johnson
    Delayed graft function (DGF) in a deceased-donor renal recipient is associated with allograft dysfunction 1-year posttransplant. There is limited research about the influence to allograft function on the mate of a DGF recipient over time. Using a retrospective cohort design, we studied 55 recipients from a single center. The primary outcome was the change in glomerular filtration rate (GFR) 1-year posttransplant. The secondary outcome was the GFR at baseline. We found that mates to DGF recipients had a mean change in GFR 1-year posttransplant of ,11.2 mL/min, while the control group had a mean change of ,0.4 mL/min. The difference in the primary outcome was significant (p = 0.025) in a multivariate analysis, adjusting for cold ischemic time, panel reactive antibody level, allograft loss, human leukocyte antibody (HLA)-B mismatches and HLA-DR mismatches. No significant difference between groups was found in baseline GFR. In conclusion, mates to DGF recipients had a significantly larger decline in allograft function 1-year posttransplant compared to controls with similar renal function at baseline. We believe strategies that may preserve allograft function in these,at-risk'recipients should be developed and tested. [source]


    Anti-Factor H Autoantibodies in a Fifth Renal Transplant Recipient with Atypical Hemolytic and Uremic Syndrome

    AMERICAN JOURNAL OF TRANSPLANTATION, Issue 5 2009
    M. Le Quintrec
    Hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) associated with anti-Factor H (anti-FH) autoantibodies is a recently described pathophysiological entity. Monitoring of anti-FH IgG titer may be a sensitive marker of disease activity and guide treatment to eliminate circulating anti-FH antibodies. We report here a case of atypical HUS (aHUS) in which anti-FH autoantibodies were detected during the course of a fifth kidney transplant, 30 years after the first flare of aHUS. This exceptional case suggests that early, specific management based on immunosuppressive therapy and plasma exchanges monitored by anti-FH IgG titer may result in long-term graft survival.

    Death from Metastatic Donor-Derived Ovarian Cancer in a Male Kidney Transplant Recipient

    AMERICAN JOURNAL OF TRANSPLANTATION, Issue 2 2009
    G. S. Lipshutz
    Posttransplant malignancy developing in an allograft is an uncommon complication of organ transplantation. The tumor may represent malignant transformation of donor or recipient cells that were previously normal, metastatic malignancy of recipient origin or malignancy transmitted from organ donor to recipient. Establishing the origin of the malignancy is critical to treatment algorithms. It is generally believed allograft removal and immunosuppression withdrawal will lead to resolution of transmitted malignancies in cases where the renal allograft is the origin. We report a male patient who developed metastatic ovarian malignancy secondary to donor transmission. [source]


    Fatal Graft-Versus-Host Disease Presenting as Fever of Unknown Origin in a Pancreas-After-Kidney Transplant Recipient

    AMERICAN JOURNAL OF TRANSPLANTATION, Issue 4 2008
    F. L. Weng
    Acute graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) is a rare complication of pancreas transplantation. We describe a 54-year-old male with type 1 diabetes who received a zero-antigen mismatched pancreas-after-kidney transplant from a pancreas donor who was homozygous at the HLA-B, -Cw, -DR, and -DQ alleles. Starting on postoperative day (POD) #22, the patient developed persistent fevers. Workup was notable only for low-grade cytomegalovirus viremia, which was treated. The fevers eventually disappeared. On POD #106, the patient was noted to have a diffuse erythematous rash. A skin biopsy was consistent with GVHD. Short tandem repeat DNA analysis of both peripheral blood lymphocytes and skin demonstrated mixed chimerism, confirming the diagnosis of GHVD. Soon after diagnosis, the patient developed pancytopenia and fevers and died of multiorgan failure on POD #145. Transplant clinicians should consider GVHD as a possible, although admittedly rare, cause of fevers of unknown origin in recipients of pancreas transplants. [source]
