Abstract

Background:

Acute cellular rejection (ACR) has a reversible effect on graft and its survival.

Objective:

To evaluate the relation between ACR and clinical factors in recipients of liver transplant allografts.

Methods:

47 consecutive liver recipients were retrospectively studied. Their data were extracted from records and analyzed.

Results:

38 (81%) of the 47 recipients experienced ACR during a 24-month follow-up. The rate of rejection was associated with none of the studied factors-recipient's blood group, sex, age, familial history of disease, drugs and blood products received, type of donor, and Child score and class.

Conclusion:

During a limited follow-up period, we did not find any association between ACR and suspected risk factors.
