Abstract

Long-term renal function was evaluated in heart transplant recipients who were treated with antilymphocyte globulin induction therapy and low-dose cyclosporine therapy. Although an initial 16% drop in the glomerular filtration rate occurred, long-term follow-up revealed stability of renal function. Four-year patient survival was 77.6%. Use of induction therapy with low-dose cyclosporine may preserve renal function without compromising long-term patient survival.
