A strategy for generating consistent long-term donor-specific tolerance to solid organ allografts.

Abstract

Current triple drug immunosuppression while effective, increases the risk of opportunistic infection and lymphoproliferative disorders. An alternative strategy would be the generation of donor-specific tolerance with short-term treatment. The use of donor-specific transfusions (DST) with a single brief course of cyclosporine (CsA) and rapamycin (Rapa) has… (More)
