PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 484 primary cardiac transplanted patients received induction therapy with two different rabbit-ATGs(More)
The authors studied the effects of lovastatin on the parameters of serum and lipoprotein lipids in an open multicenter trial. 160 patients with hypercholesterolemia participated in the study, 151 of whom completed the trial. After a 4 week period of dietary measures, the patients were treated with lovastatin for 12 weeks while combining standard lipid(More)
Due to the limited number of donor organs, death on the waiting list and waiting time for cardiac transplantation have markedly increased. A pressing need of appropriate selection criteria for patients who would benefit most from transplantation is apparent. The purpose of this study is to identify pre- and early postoperative risk factors that influence(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Cardiovascular disease is a leading cause of death in Eastern Europe. Few studies on cholesterol goal achievement have been conducted in Hungarian clinical settings.

BACKGROUND The aim of the present analysis was to define the role of simultaneous heart and kidney transplantation (HNTX) using organs from the same donor by evaluation of clinical strategy and achieved outcome compared with a reference group of concurrently single heart transplant (HTX) and kidney transplant (NTX) recipients. Compared with other organ(More)

OBJECTIVE To analyze the risk status of patients receiving long term lipid lowering therapy and the rate of achievement of target level in a Hungarian multicenter trial. METHOD The investigation was(More)

A number of risk factors for the occurrence of neutropaenic fever after haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) have been proposed. We were interested in whether these factors remain valid for several early infection-related outcomes when applied to a homogeneous group of patients in uni- and multivariate analyses. Therefore, we analysed 144(More)
