Strengths and Weaknesses of using SRTR Data to Shape the Management of the HIV infected Kidney Transplant Recipient

Peter G Stock
In this edition of AJT, Sawinski et al examine the impact of combined antiretroviral therapy (cART) on kidney transplant outcomes performed in HIV infected recipients using the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR) linked to IMS pharmacy refills (1). They found that the use of cART regimens based on protease inhibitors (PI) had a marked detrimental impact on patient and graft survival. The etiology of the surprisingly poorer results in HIV positive recipients on PI based regimens could not be ascertained based on their analysis. This article is protected by copyright.
