with high doses of corticosteroids could have exerted an additional important risk factor.
Patients receiving thymoglobulin antirejection therapy
(3 cases) were fewer in the heated versus control group (13 cases; P=.
In these 6 cases, therefore, the AR diagnosis was based on clinical signs and symptoms, plasma creatinine concentrations, and a satisfactory response to empirical treatment with antirejection therapy.
described a high total Tr-DNA concentration in a patient with AR followed by a decrease in this marker after antirejection therapy (30).
7) In the posttransplant population, it is a well-known complication of antirejection therapy
with cyclosporin A (8-10) and tacrolimus.
WASHINGTON -- The introduction of highly active antiretroviral therapy, more effective prophylactic regimens, and improvements in surgical technique and antirejection therapy

Among organ transplant recipients, salmonellosis is associated strongly with antirejection therapy
(2), and febrile illness with bacteremia is a more common presentation (3).
Results from controlled clinical trials with renal transplant patients have shown that the addition of MMF to immunosuppression protocols with cyclosporine and steroids substantially reduces the early acute rejection rate and decreases the need for antirejection therapy
while showing a favorable safety profile (6-8).
