Current Issue Highlights

Despite increasingly focused immunosuppressive strategies, transplant patients remain at increased risk for myriad infections. This month, we present a Comprehensive Review from Jay Fishman on the current state of transplant infectious disease management, including an updated rubric on the diagnosis and treatment of opportunistic infections. Also, we present two manuscripts (Noyan et al and Boardman et al) showing the effect of engineered T regulatory cells as an experimental approach toward donor-specific control of alloimmunity. Cover design by Deanna Hoskins, Duke University Department of Surgery.

17.4 report

New Rule Requires Some Physicians to Report on Postoperative Visits

Later this year, nine states will require surgeons to report information on the number of postoperative visits they provide their patients. In this issue of “The AJT Report,” we take a look at how this change in reporting may impact transplantation. Also this issue, we review the results of liver transplantation in recipients with the hepatitis C virus.
