In the present report, 11 diabetic dogs were serially studied for CsA-induced side effects during CsA treatment following intrahepatic transplantation of islet allografts. Our studies suggest that there is a need, when CsA is used as an immunosuppressive agent, to distinguish metabolic derangements that result from transplantation of an allograft from those of CsA administration. This might be of particular importance in certain transplantation settings in which graft-versus-host disease and/or liver disease becomes a primary focus of attention.
