Immunosuppression in visceral transplantation: Current trends and future perspectives

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Visceral transplant represents an immunologic challenge due to high intestinal graft immunogenicity. Over the last 20 years, significant advances in immunosuppression regimens have resulted in excellent short-term outcomes. Currently, visceral transplant is the standard of care for patients with gut failure having life-threatening complications and complex abdominal pathology. In this review, we describe immunosuppressive strategies in the visceral transplant field.
