Purpose of review Invasive fungal infections (IFIs) most often occur secondary to acquired immunodeficiency states such as transplantation, AIDS or immune-modulatory treatment for neoplastic and autoimmune disorders. Apart from these acquired conditions, several primary immunodeficiency disorders (PIDs) can present with IFIs in the absence of iatrogenic immunosuppression. This review highlights recent advances in our understanding of PIDs that cause IFIs, which may help clinicians in the diagnosis and management of such infections. Recent findings A growing number of PIDs that cause varying combinations of invasive in...

Robert Chelsea turned down the first face he was offered. It was a fine face, one that could have taken him off the transplant waiting list after just a couple months. But Chelsea—severely disfigured after a catastrophic car accident five years earlier—was in no hurry. He’d gotten used to tilting his head back so food and water wouldn’t fall out of his nearly lipless mouth. He knew how to respond compassionately to children who stared in shock and fear. The face, offered in May 2018, had belonged to a man with skin that was much fairer than what remained of Chelsea’s—so light that Chelse...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewWe review the international evolution of HIV and solid organ transplantation over 30  years. We emphasise recent developments in solid organ transplantation from HIV-infected to HIV-uninfected individuals, and their implications.Recent FindingsIn 2017, Johannesburg, South Africa, a life-saving partial liver transplant from an HIV-infected mother to her HIV-uninfected child was performed. This procedure laid the foundation not only for consideration of HIV-infected individuals as living donors, but also for the possibility that HIV-uninfected individuals could receive organs from HIV-infected...

Multivitamins, drugs, gene therapies, human skin, heart, eyeballs, kidneys, entire dead bodies – everything comes with a price tag. Putting aside the moral questions of why and how come that the capitalist market priced even our body parts and health, we asked the question of how much is life worth: what is the maximum that you would/should pay for a life-saving drug? How high is too high a cost if a drug can save 200-300 babies a year from debilitating illness or death? And ultimately, does the pricing of new technologies, especially gene therapies, enable to fulfill their promise? There’s a price for ever...
