This section to be completed when infection is the indication for the cellular therapy.

Question 70-76: Organism:

If treatment of infection is the indication for the cellular therapy, report the fungal or viral organism(s) for which the recipient is receiving the cellular therapy.

From Table 1 entitled “Codes for Commonly Reported Organisms”, select the code corresponding to the identified organism as indicated on the microbiology report, laboratory report, or other physician documentation. Report the code in the boxes provided on the form.

Fungal infections: Note the inclusion of Pneumocystis (formerly found under parasites). The most commonly found fungal infections are Candida (C. albicans), Aspergillus (A. fumigatus), and Fusarium sp.

Viral infections: Caused by exposure to a new virus or reactivation of a dormant virus already present in the body. The most common viral infections are due to HSV (Herpes Simplex Virus), and CMV (Cytomegalovirus). If the site of CMV is the lung, confirm whether the patient had interstitial pneumonitis rather than CMV pneumonia.
