The effects of prednisolone azathioprine and 6-mercaptopurine on polymorphonuclear neutrophil chemotaxis, phagocytosis, and killing of Staphylococcus aureus and Candida albicans have been studied. In twenty patients with a functioning kidney graft, taking both azathioprine 2.5 mg/kg/day and prednisolone (mean dose 0.59 mg/kg/day; range 0.30-1.0 mg/kg/day… CONTINUE READING
