33. Clonal Hematopoiesis in Lung Transplant Recipients is Associated with Adverse Clinical Outcomes

Introduction: Cellular stressors play an important role in the emergence of clonal hematopoiesis (CH). Cytotoxic chemotherapy is associated with CH due to mutations in DNA damage response (DDR) genes, such as TP53, ATM, and PPMID. Lung transplant (LTx) recipients receive lifelong immunosuppression therapy and are known to be at increased risk for a broad spectrum […]
