There is no consensus regarding the optimal induction immunosuppression regimen after lung transplantation (LT). In addition to the potential benefit of a reduced incidence of early acute allograft rejection, cytolytic induction immunosuppression may impact on long-term allograft function. We retrospectively assessed our incidence of obliterative bronchiolitis syndrome (OBS) stages Ia and IIa in LT survivors given two different cytolytic induction immunosuppression regimens: (between March 1989… CONTINUE READING
