BACKGROUND The side effects associated with corticosteroids have led to efforts to minimize their use in renal transplant patients. In this study we compared two corticosteroid-free tacrolimus-based regimens with a standard triple therapy. METHODS This was a 6-month, phase III, open-label, parallel-group, multicenter study. The total analysis set(More)
In 30% of cases nephrotic syndrome is caused by membranous glomerulonephritis (MG). Protein accumulation in glomeruli leads to progressive loss of kidney function and damage of structure in MG. The role of tissue proteolytic systems and growth factors in this process is not known. The purpose of the study was to estimate urine cathepsin B, collagenase(More)
THE AIM OF THE STUDY was to analyze indications and results of the first one thousand liver transplantations at Chair and Clinic of General, Transplantation and Liver Surgery, Medical University of Warsaw. MATERIAL AND METHODS Data from 1000 transplantations (944 patients) performed at Chair and Clinic of General, Transplantation and Liver Surgery between(More)
The so-called learning factor has been disregarded for many years in analyzing the causes of surgical complications and post-operative mortality; it is also the case for OLT. In our center until April 2003, 209 OLT were performed in 196 patients. We evaluated the impact of experience of the transplantation team on the outcomes of liver transplantation.(More)
Sirolimus is an immunosuppressive agent administered as prophylaxis of acute rejection to patients after kidney transplantation. Therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) of whole blood is an important part of immunosuppressive therapy. At present, two methods of measuring drug concentrations are available: the reference method is high-performance liquid(More)
BACKGROUND Long-term use of corticosteroids is associated with considerable morbidity, including cardiovascular and metabolic adverse effects. METHODS This study evaluated the long-term efficacy and safety of two steroid-free regimens compared with a triple immunosuppressive therapy in renal transplant recipients. This was a 3-year follow-up to a 6-month,(More)
Renal failure, mainly due to calcineurin inhibitor (CNI) nephrotoxicity, is the most common complication following orthotopic liver transplantation (ltx). The aim of this study was to evaluate the incidence and course of renal failure in adult ltx patients. Severe acute renal failure in early postoperative period due to impaired hemodynamics and CNI(More)
Aging is a complex physiological process that poses considerable conundrums to rapidly aging societies. For example, the risk of dying from cardiovascular diseases and/or cancer steadily declines for people after their 60s, and other causes of death predominate for seniors older than 80 years of age. Thus, physiological aging presents numerous unanswered(More)
