Subjects received basiliximab, calcineurin inhibitor, sirolimus and steroids. Of 274 subjects enrolled, 19 (6.9%) subjects developed posttransplant lymphoproliferative disorder (PTLD). The relative hazard (RH) for PTLD was 5.3-fold(More)

MATERIAL AND METHODS Thirty rats were divided into three groups, as sham, control and DMSO groups. Laparatomy was performed on each animal in the control and DMSO groups and common bile ducts were ligated. Common bile duct was observed but was not ligated for the rats in the sham group. Saline solution injection (1.5 mg/kg/intraperitoneally (i.p.)) was(More)
