Abstract

The history of immunosuppression is a long one. From the utilization of steroids and azathioptine in the 50's to the design of humanized molecules that specifically block cell surface receptors. Liver transplantation is one of the procedures that benefit the most with the development of new immunosuppressors and is also one of the reasons to create a new branch in research and clinical practice: transplant medicine. It also set the standards for research in the "immunologic tolerance" field. The cornerstone in the post-liver transplant stage is the utilization of calcineurin inhibitors combined with new anti-metabolites and monoclonal antibodies. All these settings conforms a promising field in the research of new and better immunosuppressing agents.
