Current Issue Highlights

Transplantation's considerable benefit is tempered by a continued requirement for nonspecific T cell–directed immunosuppression, and with it, impaired protective immunity, particularly against viral pathogens. This month we highlight articles covering the breadth of viral disease in transplantation, including well-known pathogens such as Epstein–Barr virus (Dharnidharka, AlDabbagh et al), cytomegalovirus (Zheng et al), and BK virus (Kuppachi et al), as well as less common pathogens such as West Nile virus (Wilson et al) and parainfluenza virus (Helanterä et al). We also feature a recent commentary on an emerging threat, Zika virus (Nogueira et al, and Blumberg and Fishman's editorial). These articles continue to underscore the immune consequences of organ transplantation, and impel continued work toward more precise immune management strategies.
