The survival of transplanted kidneys has improved over time, but there is an increased risk of neoplastic disease. In the long time follow up, non-melanoma skin cancers (NMSC) are the most frequent diseases and at the time of the occurrence of a NMSC we should evaluate a reduction or a change of IS. From a clinical point of view, the evaluation of immunosuppression is still a problem. The Immuknow assay may be of help in evaluating the immune response of transplanted patients. Here, by means of the ImmKnow assay, we tried to evaluate if long term renal transplant patients with NMSC are more immunosuppressed than patients without NMSC.

Abstract

The survival of transplanted kidneys has improved over time, but there is an increased risk of neoplastic disease. In the long time follow up, non-melanoma skin cancers (NMSC) are the most frequent diseases and at the time of the occurrence of a NMSC we should evaluate a reduction or a change of IS. From a clinical point of view, the evaluation of immunosuppression is still a problem. The Immuknow assay may be of help in evaluating the immune response of transplanted patients. Here, by means of the ImmKnow assay, we tried to evaluate if long term renal transplant patients with NMSC are more immunosuppressed than patients without NMSC.
