New Findings from St. Louis Hospital in the Area of Stem Cells Reported (Viral Respiratory Infections Diagnosed by Multiplex PCR after Allogeneic Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation: Long-Term Incidence and Outcome)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Hematology Week -- Investigators discuss new findings in Stem Cell Research. According to news reporting from Paris, France, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "Viral respiratory infections (VRIs) are frequent after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation and constitute a potential cause of mortality."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from St. Louis Hospital, "We analyzed the incidence, risk factors, and prognosis of VRIs in a cohort of transplanted patients. More frequent viruses were human coronavirus and human rhinovirus followed by flu-like viruses and adenovirus."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Risk factors for death were lymphocytopenia and high steroid dosage."
