The impact of thymoglobulin on renal function and calcineurin inhibitor initiation in recipients of orthotopic liver transplant: a retrospective analysis of 298 consecutive patients.
BACKGROUND Renal dysfunction remains the Achilles' heel of calcineurin inhibitor (CI)use. The purpose of this study was to assess our institutional, renal-sparing strategy using thymoglobulin (TMG)Expand
