Cleveland Clinic Study: Using Lungs from Increased-Risk Donors Expands Donor Pool While Maintaining Current Survival Rates

Cleveland Clinic

Cleveland Clinic researchers have found that using lungs from donors who are considered high risk for certain infectious diseases compared to standard risk donors results in similar one-year survival for recipients. In addition, researchers saw no difference in rejection or graft (donor lung) survival after one year in patients receiving lungs from increased-risk donors. The study was published recently in the Journal of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery.

Newswise: Addition of Post-Transplant Chemotherapy to Standard Immune Treatment Shows Increase of Allogeneic Transplant Patients in Remission

Addition of Post-Transplant Chemotherapy to Standard Immune Treatment Shows Increase of Allogeneic Transplant Patients in Remission

Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey

Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey investigators compared outcomes for allogeneic stem cell transplant patients when post-transplant cyclophosphamide (PCy) was added as part of standard treatment than if standard treatment was given alone. Results showed an increase in the number of patients who were free of disease and off immunosuppression at one-year in the PCy cohort.
