Part of the Transplantation and Clinical Immunology book series (TRAC, volume 27)


As renal transplantation is being increasingly undertaken for growing numbers of patients with end-stage renal disease, there has been a trend toward offering this treatment to patients who have undergone successful treatment for malignant disease. Malignancies following immunosuppressive therapy have been observed at all transplantation centers and much material has been published on this subject in recent years [1–8].
