Cyclosporin A combined with prednisone was compared with standard immunosuppressive therapy (antilymphoblast globulin, prednisone, and azathioprine) in a prospective randomized trial of 100 mismatched, living related donor and cadaveric renal transplants. The results demonstrated cyclosporin A plus prednisone to be an effective immunosuppressive regimen for renal transplantation. The actuarial graft survival at 1 year was 93% for patients treated with cyclosporin A and 81% for patients treated… CONTINUE READING
