  • patient's bloodstream
  • Transplant immunotherapy reduces HLA sensitivity by adding helpful antibodies to the patient's bloodstream. (cedars-sinai.edu)
  • Chemo- and radiation therapy weakens the patient's immune cells and damages the intestinal lining, allowing bacterial endotoxins that normally reside in the intestine to seep into the patient's bloodstream and initiate inflammatory responses that can trigger GVHD. (dana.org)
  • Consortium researchers hypothesize that the endotoxin molecule, located on the surface of intestinal bacteria, seeps into the patient's bloodstream and induces an immune "cytokine" (called tumor necrosis factor-α or TNF-α) to initiate inflammation. (dana.org)
  • Bacterial
  • To examine shifts in the etiology and susceptibility of bacterial isolates from transplants, we reviewed the incidence and susceptibility of blood isolates during a 7-year period. (oup.com)
  • While XOMA will assess how effective (rBPI21) is in preventing GVHD, consortium researchers will examine how (rBPI21) may work, and whether it neutralizes the effects of the bacterial endotoxin in transplant patients. (dana.org)
  • 2016
  • We conducted a retrospective review of all BSI episodes occurring between July 2009 and April 2016 in adult patients, who received a renal transplant at Royal Free London hospital. (readbyqxmd.com)
  • This is a retrospective cohort study based on data collected from the allogenic transplant performed at the Department of Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation at the Instituto Nacional de Pediatría (INP) registered in a database, from January 1998 to December 2016. (scirp.org)
  • hospitals
  • Once UNOS receives the data from local hospitals, people waiting for a transplant are placed on a waiting list and given a "status" code. (nyhq.org)
  • pancreas
  • Located behind the stomach, the pancreas has two major roles: to release digestive juices into the intestines and key hormones into the bloodstream. (nih.gov)
