About This Topic
Currently, world is fighting against an invisible enemy, SARS-CoV-2 virus and its disease (COVID-19 disease). Data so far suggests that effects of COVID-19 is more in individuals older than 65 years, male gender, and individuals with multiple comorbidities. Lately, few studies from China have shown a higher incidence of COVID-19 disease amongst cancer patients than in general population. However, that needs to be confirmed in other countries. Similarly, other immunosuppressed individuals like transplant recipients especially who are on immunosuppressants have diminished fighting response in general. Similarly, it is challenging for the transplant specialists to do transplantation during this COVID-19 crisis. Various societies around the world are providing their expert opinions but still lots of work still needs to be done to streamline the smooth functioning of the transplant procedure of various organs. We hereby encourage young scholars, researchers, and transplant specialists to submit to us their opinion, experience and personal views on this crucial topic.
