Over a prolonged period, we followed 13 pediatric patients with FSGS who had undergone transplantation from living-related donors, analyzing risk factors for recurrent disease. Native nephrectomies were performed bilaterally in all patients at least 1 month prior to transplantation. Immunosuppressive therapy consisted of cyclosporine (CyA), mizoribine, prednisone, and antilymphocytic… CONTINUE READING
