  • Lung transplantation is a therapeutic option for patients with end-stage pulmonary disorders. Unfortunately, due to post-lung transplant complications, both infectious and noninfectious, it is only a treatment and not a cure. Importantly, despite induction combined with triple or quadruple maintenance immunosuppressive therapy, chronic lung rejection, in the form of obliterative bronchiolitis or its clinical correlate bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome (BOS), continues to be highly prevalent and… CONTINUE READING
