New USPHS Guidelines for Infection and Transplant

The CDC MMWR has published a document entitled Assessing Solid Organ Donors and Monitoring Transplant Recipients for HIV, HBV, and HCV Infection — U.S. Public Health Service Guideline, 2020., describing advances in infection detection and treatment since the previous 2013 edition, with recommendations for organ procurement organizations and transplant centers.  It doesn’t cover COVID-19 organ damage or transmission.  Find the Guideline at https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/69/rr/rr6904a1.htm?s_cid=rr6904a1_w.
