BACKGROUND High total plasma homocysteine (tHcy) levels are accompanied by an increased risk for premature development of atherosclerosis and atherothrombosis. Adult renal transplant recipients have elevated tHcy levels. Corresponding data in pediatric, adolescent, and young adult renal transplant recipients are scarce. We investigated whether tHcy levels were elevated in stable renal transplant recipients who received kidney grafts before age 18. METHODS This cross-sectional study was… CONTINUE READING
