Immunization in transplantation: review of the recent literature

Published in Current Opinion in Organ Transplantation. 2013, vol. 18, no. 5, p. 543-548
Abstract Immunosuppressive treatments increase the life-long risk of solid organ transplant (SOT) recipients for severe infections, some of which are vaccine-preventable. In this review of the literature published during the last 15 months, we critically summarize vaccine-oriented articles in SOT candidates or recipients. Because of previously reported differences, vaccine-specific studies are needed for each type of SOT recipients.
