Our experience with clinical intestinal transplantation under FK 506 immunosuppression showed that 50% of the recipients were able to be independent from TPN after transplantation, but 10% require partial TPN with functioning grafts, 10% needed total TPN after graft removal, and 30% of the recipients died postoperatively, mostly from sepsis due to severe graft rejection. For further improvement in patient survival and in the quality of life for patients after intestinal transplantation, it is mandatory to establish a new strategy for treatment and prevention of graft rejection and systemic infection.
