Abstract

Kidney transplantation appears to be safe in HIV-infected patients carefully selected. As previously reported, we observed a high incidence of acute rejection. We expect that the recent implementation of the immunosuppressive protocols will allow a better immunologic control. Moreover, the introduction of InSTI permits a better strategy of cART, with lower incidence of PK interactions with immunosuppressive drugs.
