Lack of Suppressor T Cells in Renal Transplant Recipients and Activation by Aminophylline
A striking parallel between the failure to improve recent transplant results and unchanging transplant immunosuppression exists today. The present study was undertaken in order to clarify whether aberrations of suppressor T cells occur in renal transplant recipients and whether activation of this immunoregulatory T cell subset by aminophylline administration could have any beneficial effect in the treatment of acute steroid resistant rejection of the transplanted kidney.
