OBM Transplantation is an international peer-reviewed Open Access journal, which covers all evidence-based scientific studies related to transplantation, including: transplantation procedures and the maintenance of transplanted tissues or organs; assimilation of grafted tissue and the reconstitution of removed organs or parts of organs; transplantation of heart, lung, kidney, liver, pancreatic islets and bone marrow, etc. Areas related to clinical and experimental transplantation are also of interest.
OBM Transplantation is committed to rapid review and publication, and we aim at serving the international transplant community with high accessibility as well as relevant and high quality content.
We welcome original clinical studies as well as basic science, reviews, short reports/rapid communications, case reports, opinions, technical notes, book reviews as well as letters to the editor.
Archiving: full-text archived in CLOCKSS.
Rapid publication: manuscripts are undertaken in 8 days from acceptance to publication (median values for papers published in this journal in 2021, 1-2 days of FREE language polishing time is also included in this period).

About This Topic
This issue of the Journal aims to discuss current research and clinical data on the benefits of dietary agents on survival of transplanted organs and tissues. Special attention will be made on the interactions between dietary agents and anti-rejection drugs. Dietary managements of various conditions associated with transplant procedures will also be discussed. Efforts will be made to educate the readers of the importance of the diets in transplant patients in regard to their stage of life cycle. While the main focus of discussion will be on the benefits of dietary agents for prolongation of the life of transplanted organs and tissues, a number of dietary agents and/or diets which may be contraindicated in transplant subjects will be included.

Obesity is on the rise and the number of end stage renal disease patients who are obese parallel this trend. There is no universally accepted guideline for wait-listing end stage renal disease obese patients in order to reduce short-term complications and improve long-term survival of the kidney graft. Criteria for acceptance are variable [...]
Early Nutrition during Critical Illness in Pediatric Patients Post-Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation
Received: 24 April 2018; Published: 29 October 2018; doi: 10.21926/obm.transplant.1804022
Background: Hematopoietic cell transplant (HCT) patients are a high-risk population for poor nutrition and decreased survival. There is little data on how nutrition in pediatric HCT patients affects need for critical care interventions and outcomes. Methods: We hypothesized that patients who did not meet goal nutrition by 72 hours post-admissi [...]
