Pulmonary aspergillosis in kidney transplant recipients: risk factors and factors associated with outcome - call for participation in this study
The study is promoted by the Spanish Network for the Research in Infectious Diseases (REIPI - RESITRA) and the Study Group of Infection in Transplantation (GESITRA) of the Spanish Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (SEIMC)
This study has two targets. The first target is to define some risk factors that allow the identification of a subgroup of kidney transplant recipients that would be candidates for antifungal prophylaxis active against Aspergillus. The second target is to find factors implicated in the outcome that were amenable to intervention
The study will retrospectively include cases of probable or probed pulmonary aspergillosis (according to EORTC-MSG definition) diagnosed in kidney transplant recipients from the year 2000 to now
We should receive your cases and controlsbefore 30 June 2013
