Abstract

Prednisone-minimization protocols have been successful in low-risk recipients. We report on the use of a protocol incorporating rapid discontinuation of prednisone in a cohort of kidney transplant recipients (n = 79) at increased immunologic risk. Our data suggests that such recipients should not be excluded from prednisone-minimization protocols.
