Abstract

These updated guidelines from the Infectious Diseases Community of Practice of the American Society of Transplantation will review the current state of the art of donor-derived infections. Specifically, the guideline will summarize standardized definitions and approaches to defining imputability, updated data on the epidemiology of donor-derived infections, and approaches to risk mitigation against transmission of infections. This update will additionally provide guidance on the use of HIV+ donors in HIV+ recipients, the use of HCV-viremic donors in non-viremic recipients, donors with endemic infections, and donors with bacteremia, meningitis, and encephalitis. Lastly, the guidance will summarize an approach to recipients with a suspected donor-derived infection.
