Posttransplantation erythrocytosis (PE) is a frequent problem in renal transplant patients. The pathogenesis and mechanisms of both the problem and therapy strategy are unknown. Since ACE and angiotensin 2 receptor inhibitors have been used to successfully manage PE, we speculated a relation between gene polymorphisms and this complication. Ninety-six ( 30 women, 66 men, age 34.4 +/- 11.0 years) renal transplant patients evaluated retrospectively, for gene polymorphisms of ACE, angiotensinogen… CONTINUE READING
