Prasad Hospitals >> Graft versus Host Disease
Graft versus host disease (GvHD) is a condition that might occur after a transplant. The donated bone marrow in the case of GvHD, or peripheral blood stem cells view the recipient’s body as foreign, and the donated cells/bone marrow attack the body.
As a transplant recipient, you might experience either form of GvHD, both forms.
Acute GvHD occurs when the donor’s cells are being engrafted in the transplant recipient. It might develop in your eyes, liver, skin gastrointestinal tract, and these symptoms might appear within weeks.
Chronic GvHD can appear at any time after allogeneic transplants or several years after your transplant. Chronic GvHD might occur in the mouth, eyes, skin, lungs, liver, gastrointestinal tract, genitourinary tract, or neuromuscular system.
Symptoms of Acute GvHD might include any of the following:
A promising treatment option for Acute GvHD consists of an infusion of bone marrow donor Mesenchymal Stromal Cells(MSC). MSCs have been used in the treatment of Acute GvHD due to their inhibitory effects on the proliferation and cytotoxic activity of immune system cells.
