Graft loss due to medication non-adherence remains a significant obstacle to optimal long-term outcomes for the transplant community. The decision to retransplant a patient who has been non-adherent to their medication regimen is one of ethical debate, yet little evidence exists to guide health professionals in this process. This manuscript sought to fill this gap […]

Acute rejection related to non-adherence to treatment after transplant remains a barrier to optimal outcomes. This study builds on prior literature which asserts that monitoring variation of drug levels is a viable method to reliably detect nonadherence and prevent rejection in pediatric patients. Investigators followed 46 pediatric renal transplant recipients and measured tacrolimus and mycophenolic […]
