Hyperlipidemia following successful renal transplantation is a frequent and persistent complication. Several immunosuppressive agents including cyclosporine A (CyA), corticosteroids, and tacrolimus appear to have a significant pathogenetic role. The aim of this study is to investigate the differential effects of different immunosuppressive agents on lipids in renal transplant patients. Two groups of renal transplant recipients, each treated with a different combination of immunosuppressive… CONTINUE READING
