Abstract

The new immunosuppressive agent, cyclosporin A, was used with low doses of steroids to treat eight patients undergoing hepatic transplantation and three patients undergoing cadaveric renal transplantation. Seven of the eight liver recipients are well, including one who was given two livers. The three kidney recipients, who had developed cytotoxic antibodies after previously rejecting grafts with conventional immunosuppressive therapy, have had good results despite conditions which usually preclude attempts at transplantation. The ability to control rejection effectively and safely without chronic high-dose steroid therapy may make the described therapeutic regimen valuable for pediatric recipients of whole organs. © 1982 The C.
