Presensitized renal allograft recipients require special management to improve their outcome, and there is no consensus on the optimal immunosuppressive strategy. We retrospectively analyzed clinical data of 82 patients, who were PRA positive pre-transplant (above 10%) and received single bolus ATG and basiliximab as induction therapy, and assessed safety(More)
Second renal transplants are historically associated with a poor prognosis. The aim of the present study was to assess long-term survival of second renal grafts from deceased donors performed at our center and to analyze risk factors associated with long-term graft outcome. Sixty-five second renal grafts were enrolled into this study, and compared to(More)
OBJECTIVE To establish a formula for estimating area under the concentration-versus-time curve (AUC) of mycophenolate sodium in Chinese renal allograft recipients with a limited sampling model. METHODS A total of 35 renal allograft recipients were recruited from 2010 to 2013 to receive enteric-coated mycophenolate sodium (EC-MPS), calcineurin (CNI) and(More)
To explore the long-term outcomes of paediatric kidney transplantation and the effects of renal allograft on growth, education, employment, marriage and procreation. Twenty-seven children with ESRD received the renal allograft from 1985 to 2001. The patient and kidney survival rate, renal function, growth and employment, etc., were reviewed retrospectively.(More)
BACKGROUND Recently a considerable number of promising clinical trials have been designed to perform infusion of stem cells by pancreatic arterial intervention to improve the endocrine function of the pancreas for better diabetes control. It is necessary to investigate the pancreatic body and tail (PBT) arterial system for human islets located mostly in the(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of immunosuppressive agents on insulin secretion of human islet cells in vitro. METHODS Human islet cells were isolated by the solution of the liberase and purified by Ficoll's density gradient centrifugation and then were exposed to various concentrations of four immunosuppressive agents for 24 hr respectively.(More)
