The effect of the diltiazem-cyclosporine interaction on cyclosporine pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and pharmacoeconomics was studied in 10 recipients of renal allografts. Each subject was studied while receiving diltiazem 60 mg twice/day and while not taking the drug. After achieving steady-state conditions, cyclosporine and metabolite concentrations(More)
To evaluate the possible presence of rejection 37 99mtechnetium sulfur colloid imaging procedures were done on 17 renal transplant patients. There was good correlation between the clinical diagnosis and the results of the technetium sulfur colloid images, with no falsely positive studies in the series. An illustrative case and a review of pertinent(More)
