Current Issue Highlights
Hyperlipidemia is a common comorbid condition in transplant patients, one that is exacerbated by the immunosuppressive drugs used to prevent rejection. Long known to worsen cardiovascular disease, two articles from the Iacomini lab (Bagley et al and Yuan et al) now demonstrate a direct impact on allospecific lymphocyte function, implicating this condition in the rejection process directly. These studies have clear clinical implications, and pull together two apparently distinct disease processes into a common disease paradigm. Cover design by Ken North, North Design Group.
