Donor PTX3 polymorphisms were shown to influence the risk of invasive aspergillosis among hematopoietic stem cell transplant recipients. Here, we show that PTX3 polymorphisms are independent risk factors for invasive mold infection among 1101 solid organ transplant recipients, thereby strengthening their role in mold infection pathogenesis and patient's risk stratification.
