Pravastatin decreases cold ischemia--but not alloantigen-dependent transplant arteriosclerosis.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Alloantigen mismatch and cold ischemia have been shown to induce transplant arteriosclerosis. Pravastatin (PR) decreases arteriosclerosis probably related to an immunosuppressive effect. Statins possess other nonimmune properties that may be beneficial to transplantation. We studied the effect of PR on cold ischemia and alloantigen-induced… (More)
