Abstract

The numbers and survival rates of patients undergoing solid organ transplantation have increased over the past decade. The use of immunosuppressive drugs has contributed greatly to the success of transplantation. Drugs such as cyclosporine, corticosteroids, azathioprine, ATG/ALG, OKT3, and new drugs under investigation such as FK506 are being used on a daily basis by clinicians who care for organ transplant patients. This paper reviews these medications with respect to dosing, administration, adverse effects and drug interactions.
