2006/019 NICE issues guidance on immunosuppressive therapy for young kidney transplant patients

NICE has today (26 April 2006) issued guidance on the use of immunosuppressive therapy for renal (kidney) transplantation in children and adolescents.

The aim of immunosuppressant treatments after kidney transplantation is to suppress the immune system to reduce the likelihood of acute rejection and to prolong the survival of the transplanted organ.  People who undergo kidney transplantation need to receive lifelong (or at least, long-term) treatment with immunosuppressive drugs.
