We report here on a European cohort of 27 kidney transplant recipients displaying operational tolerance, compared to two cohorts of matched kidney transplant recipients under immunosuppression and patients who stopped immunosuppressive drugs and presented with rejection. We report that a lower proportion of operationally tolerant patients received induction therapy (52% without induction therapy vs. 78.3%[p = 0.0455] and 96.7%[p = 0.0001], respectively), a difference likely due to the higher… CONTINUE READING
