Graft vs. Host Disease (GvHD) is a reaction that develops after an allogeneic bone marrow transplant. An allogeneic transplant is one in which the Author: April Kahn. Graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) is a life-threatening complication that can occur after certain stem cell or bone marrow transplants.
GVHD may occur after a bone marrow, or stem cell, transplant in which someone receives bone marrow tissue or cells from a donor. This type of transplant is called allogeneic. The new, transplanted cells regard. In most of the immunodeficient patients, a GVHD is fatal.
Skin is the most commonly affected organ with a typical distribution of rash affecting soles and palms initially, progressing to head, face and body. However, GVHD is a rare disease because of an improvement in tissue matching by: Overview; GVHD occurs when significant numbers of functional donor T-cells are directly engrafted into a recipient or if donor T-cells can develop from engrafted Hematopoietic Stem Cells.
GVHD is much more common in immunocompromised recipients and this is frequently the case in the context of bone marrow or solid organ transplantation in which the immune system. GVHD occurs when the donor’s T cells (the graft) view the patient’s healthy cells (the host) as foreign, and attack and damage them.
Graft-versus-host disease can be mild, moderate or severe. In some cases, it can be life-threatening. Unless the patient’s donor is an identical twin, a patient receiving an allogeneic stem cell transplant.
