Abstract

The rate of infectious complications in SOT recipients has declined dramatically. As improvements in immunosuppressive therapy, surgical techniques, and diagnostics and antimicrobial treatment continue, further declines in infectious complications are expected. Refinements to preemptive therapy for high-risk patients are likely to contribute further to this decrease. Further investigation is required to define what role various infectious agents play in chronic allograft injury and rejection.
