• immunosuppression
  • Signs of infection can overlap with those for rejection, and immunosuppression blunts traditional signs of infection (fever, white count). (clinicaladvisor.com)
  • When selecting immunosuppressive regimens, several factors are considered including immunological risk of rejection, potential for excessive immunosuppression (e.g., infection and cancer), medication side effects, adherence, and cost of medications. (springer.com)
  • Encapsulife is a private corporation created to commercialize Dr. Wang's nano-technology and bio-medical research, with its first focus being the development of a "living cell bio-artificial pancreas that does not require immunosuppression drugs to prevent rejection in diabetics" which would provide a "functional cure" for Type I diabetes. (wikipedia.org)
  • clinical
  • The vaccine bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) was tested in a clinical trial, and interim results reveal a potential new pathway whereby the BCG vaccine might restore immune response to the insulin producing cells of the pancreas. (integrateddiabetes.com)
  • patient's
  • Rejection may occur immediately or at any time during the patient's life. (wikipedia.org)
  • But as episodes of rejection may reoccur throughout a patient's life, the exact choices and dosages of immunosuppressants may have to be modified over time. (wikipedia.org)
  • If the cells are not from a genetically identical donor the patient's body will recognize them as foreign and the immune system will begin to attack them as with any transplant rejection. (wikipedia.org)
  • Chronic
  • Chronic rejection patients usually present to clinic or physician offices with laboratory derangements, decreasing urine output, malaise or uremic symptoms. (clinicaladvisor.com)
  • recipient's
  • This is because the transplanted pancreas comes from another organism, thus the recipient's immune system will consider it as an aggression and try to combat it. (wikipedia.org)
  • Due to the genetic difference between the organ and the recipient, the recipient's immune system will identify the organ as foreign and attempt to destroy it, causing transplant rejection. (wikipedia.org)
