Abstract

BMD is not lower in FK506- than in CsA-treated patients although exposure to hyperparathyroidism was longer and estradiol levels were lower in the FK506 than in the CsA group. These data suggest that FK506 may have a favorable bone effect to compensate for these deleterious factors. This hypothesis remains to be tested in longitudinal studies.
