  • BACKGROUND Replacement of calcineurin inhibitor (CI) with anti-metabolic agents in transplant patients with CI-induced nephrotoxicity is performed clinically and improves renal function, but increases the risk of rejection. We investigated whether the change from cyclosporine (CsA) to a limited dose of mycophenolic acid (MPA) together with a new sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) receptor agonist, KRP-203, is sufficient to prevent both transplant vasculopathy and CsA-induced nephrotoxicity… CONTINUE READING
