Special Issue "SARS-CoV-2 Vaccination in Transplant Recipients"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2023) | Viewed by 2496
Interests: SARS-CoV-2; COVID-19; vaccines; antibody response
Recipients of solid organ transplants are at a high risk of developing severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) and its associated complications. The introduction of targeted vaccines has mitigated the risk of developing infection, albeit with a continued suboptimal response in comparison to the general population. This suboptimal response is mostly attributable to the use of maintenance immunosuppression to prevent organ rejection. This issue will cover the following pertinent aspects of the SARS-CoV-2 vaccine in recipients of solid organ transplantation:
- Track the arc of development of the SARS-CoV-2 vaccines and their use in recipients of solid organ transplants;
- Review vaccine response in transplant recipients focused on each type of solid organ transplantation;
- Methods of monitoring immune response to vaccines;
- Measures to reduce the risk of infection in patients with an absent/reduced response to vaccines.
