Lectin complement pathway gene profile of donor and recipient determine the risk of bacterial infections after orthotopic liver transplantation.

Abstract

UNLABELLED Infectious complications after orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT) are a major clinical problem. The lectin pathway of complement activation is liver-derived and a crucial effector of the innate immune defense against pathogens. Polymorphisms in lectin pathway genes determine their functional activity. We assessed the relationship between… (More)
