Description of intervention(s) / exposure
Other interventions - Universal Posaconazole Prophylaxis
Other interventions - Pre-emptive Posaconazole Therapy

Experimental: Universal posaconazole prophylaxis - Universal posaconazole prophylaxis: All patients will start posaconazole modified release tablet (300mg daily ) between Day 4 and Day 14 post lung or heart-lung transplantation for 3 months.

Experimental: Pre-emptive posaconazole therapy - Pre-emptive posaconazole therapy: Posaconazole will be started if a fungal pathogen is identified or there is serological evidence of a fungal pathogen in the absence of any evidence of invasive fungal disease and given for 3 months.


Other interventions: Universal Posaconazole Prophylaxis
All patients assigned to this arm will start posaconazole between Day 4 and Day 14 post lung or heart-lung transplant for a minimum of 3 months.

Other interventions: Pre-emptive Posaconazole Therapy
Posaconazole will be started if a fungal pathogen is identified or there is serological evidence of a fungal pathogen in the absence of any evidence of invasive fungal disease for 3 months.
