BACKGROUND Advances in immunosuppression have made renal transplantation an effective therapy for end stage renal failure; with low rejection rates and long graft survival times. However, the major adverse consequences, infection and malignancy have not diminished. To predict this risk a score of immune competence has been developed from the simultaneous laboratory assessment of multiple parameters of immune function. METHODS The immune status of 152 transplant recipients (138 renal and 14… CONTINUE READING
