Allograft Transplant cancer Registry

  • Israel Penn


Advances in our understanding of cancer derive from the recent discovery that immune deficiency is associated with an increased frequency of malignancies, particularly lymphomas. This increase has been observed both in naturally occurring diseases (23,47) and in conditions produced by iatrogenic depression of immunity (76–86). A prime example is the immunosuppressed state induced in organ transplant recipients. In 1968, we first drew attention to an increased incidence of neoplasms in this group of patients (76). Since then, we have maintained an informal allograft transplant cancer registry. Physicians from many countries have generously contributed their data. The cases reported up to September 1982 are summarized here.
