    Am J Transplant 7:2797-801. 2007
    ..In patients awaiting liver transplantation, both the TST and QFT-G were comparable for the diagnosis of LTBI with reasonable concordance between tests. Indeterminate QFT-G result was more likely in those with more advanced liver disease...

    Department of Transplant Infectious Diseases, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
    J Heart Lung Transplant 27:11-6. 2008
    ..Epidemiologic data in lung transplant recipients are lacking. We determined the incidence and clinical characteristics of herpes zoster, and the risk factors for developing herpes zoster, after lung transplantation...
