Abstract

Immunosuppression with Cs regimens has not significantly altered infection patterns relative to earlier modalities. However, reports of increased infection, especially with CMV/PCC, are not borne out in our experience both in numbers and timing of infections. Patients on low-dose Cs immunosuppression do continue to acquire infectious complications but, in general, rarely will lose their grafts or lives.
