Abstract

Methods: A single-center retrospective analysis of medical records of 989 liver transplant recipients from 2001-2010 were reviewed and evaluated for patients who received thymo induction with delayed initiation of CNI. All patients received mycophenolate mofetil (500mg BID) and steroids (x3 months post-livert ransplant). Results: Of 989 liver transplant recipients reviewed, 312 received thymo induction with delayed initiation of CNI. Median follow-up period was 839±629.12 (±SD) days post-liver transplant. Results are reported in Tables 1 and 2 (Table presented). In conclusion, in our analysis, we found that thymo induction with delayed initiation of CNI therapy in liver transplant patients is safe and associated with long-term improvements in renal function.
