BACKGROUND In the first year after renal allograft transplantation, triple therapy immunosuppression with cyclosporin (CsA), prednisone (P), and mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) is superior to a triple therapy treatment that includes azathioprine (AZA) instead of MMF. Whether long-term treatment with CsA-P-MMF is better than treatment with CsA-P-AZA is a matter(More)
BACKGROUND Recently, a polymorphism at position 825 (C-->T) of the cDNA that encodes the beta3 subunit of heterotrimeric G proteins (Gbeta3) was found to be associated with essential hypertension. The T allele leads to the formation of a truncated splice variant (Gbeta3-s) with enhanced activity, promoting hypertension. We examined whether the T allele had(More)
